When you’re feeling restless at home, try going for a walk, jog, or bike ride to get your heart rate up but if you find yourself in a area in a crowded area or path, try to seek out a new, less-crowded route. Remember to keep a distance of at least 6 feet from other people and wear a face mask.
Do bodyweight exercises like push ups, squats, lunges, planks, chair dips, pull ups among others. These work outs doesn't require any weightlifting equipment or a gym.
