What My Weekly Workout Routine Looks Like During The Quarantine

I have to say that my body and brain feel like they’re getting healthier by the day during this coronavirus quarantine! Maybe it’s all the love and relationship quality from the extra family time, maybe it’s the total avoidance of my usual foray into airports and airplanes, or maybe it’s the type of physical movement routine I’ve been incorporating. Here’s what my weekly workout routine looks like during the quarantine:

Monday

Tuesday

  • Morning: 20-30 minute sauna with yoga and mobility followed by 3-5 minute cold soak
  • Lunch break: 20-30 minute sunshine walk
  • Late afternoon: 30 minutes BFR bodyweight training and cardio (e.g. As Many Rounds As Possible 2 minutes Assault Airbike + 30 squats, 20 pushups, 10 pullups all with BFR or Kaatsu bands on)
  • Evening: 15-20 minute meditation and breathwork

Wednesday

Thursday

Friday

Saturday

  • Free for 1.5-2 hours of family hike, tennis, mountain biking, sauna, yoga, etc.

Sunday

How about you? What does your home workout routine look like during this quarantine? Leave your comments below this Roundup and I’ll check ‘em out.

How To Make Your Own Highly Concentrated Superfood Sprouts For Dirt Cheap

During my quarantine time, I powered through The Sprout Book to learn how to use dirt-cheap seeds (readily available anywhere even when grocery stores are sold out of twinkies and toilet paper) to unlock a host of nutrients in an inexpensive, space-saving environment at home. I used the “Broccoli & Friends” mix (a potent blend of high-germination broccoli, alfalfa, radish, and clover sprouting seeds) and the glass mason jar sprouting method to sprout for 5 days and…holy hell! Check out the life these little powerhouses took on!

As you’ll read in the book—which teaches you how to easily grow sprouts, microgreens, grasses, and much more—the health benefits of sprouts include the ability to improve the digestive process, increase metabolic rate, increase enzymatic activity, prevent anemia, aid in weight loss, regulate cholesterol, reduce blood pressure, prevent neural tube defects, boost skin health, improve vision, support the immune system, and increase usable energy reserves. Plus, sprouting deactivates all the built in plant defense mechanisms. I plan to use most of these on salads and in smoothies, then salt spice and dehydrate a batch for a crunchy on-the-go snack. Anybody else gonna get on the sprouting bandwagon, or already do this at home?

Kion Creatine is guaranteed to be:

  • Tested for purity and banned substances regularly.
  • Backed by clinical research.
  • Proven to be safe for long-term use and incredibly effective.
  • Absorbed almost immediately after intake with a bioavailability of over 95%.

Proud to have officially passed my Russian Kettlebell Certification (RKC). You can sign up at BenGreenfieldFitness.com/dragondoor (link also in bio). I couldn’t have done it without the help of my good bud @coachjoedi. You can join Joe and I at the luxury Runga retreat this fall if you want to learn from the master himself. You can apply at BenGreenfieldFitness.com/runga (link also in bio). But in the meantime, here’s a sample of just one of the many workouts Joe supplied me with for training. Complete 4 Rounds of a 3-minute Circuit + 3-minute Assault Bike. Rest 30s between exercises. (Circuit = 6x 24kg KB Snatch, 3 Goblet Squat, 2 Hand-Release Push-Ups, switch sides on the Snatch each set. Work non-stop for 3-minutes.) Maintain consistent calorie burn each round on the Assault bike. Then- Ascending Breathing Ladder 32kg 2-hand swings (1 Swings, 1 Breath, 2 Swings, 2 Breath, 3 Swings, 3 Breaths, to failure.) Who else out there is a fan of kettlebell training or plans on trying it? Also, what do you think I should take on as my next training challenge – preferably something that, like kettlebells, can be trained for anytime, anyplace?

    Hey Ben, do you do any tabata sets anymore?

  3. Ben, word of advice, you can get really sick from those sprouts with a boat load of bacteria, including ecoli.. it happened to me even though i did it the right way. I heard so many great things about it (bought jars, organic seeds) but not worth it after all.

    1. Joe says:

      Wait really? I’ve actually per-ordered the new book on sprouts because it seems like fun. Why is it so dangerous and does he address this in the book?

  4. Eduardo says:

    Exercise…
    Everyday early morning: sunlight + grounding + breath work (wim hof or 4-7-8 or 10 cycles of 30s holding and 5s breathing)
    Day 1: chest, shoulders and triceps
    Day 2: back and biceps
    Day 3: legs and abs
    Day 4: Day 1
    Day 5: Day 2
    Day 6: HIIT on the mountain bike (7 very quick, 7 very slow)
    Accessories: 2 bottles of 2 liters soda and 1 gas canister of 13 kg
    No gym no awesome equipment
