Since COVID-19 has sur­faced in Saskatoon, many people are practicing social distancing to prevent the spread of the virus. Though it’s a smart thing to do, quar­antining yourself can lead to substantial boredom and a lack of motivation to remain physically active.

Physical activity is not only beneficial for your mental health but will help to strengthen your immune system. Listed below is a quick workout to get you nice and sweaty while pro­tected from the germs at your local gym.

Complete this workout three times and it should take about 15 minutes of your time. It can be done with or without weights. But make sure to warm up first with two minutes of jumping jacks and burpees.

1. Squat jumps: 15 repetitions

2. Donkey kicks: 12 repetitions per side

3. Tricep dips: 15 repetitions

4. Incline push-ups: 12 repetitions

5. Russian twists: 12 repetitions
