How do you keep a healthy mindset with everything that’s going on - or not going on - as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak? Our lives have been substantially disrupted with very little certainly to find with the unpredictable circumstances we face. How do we cope? How do we rearrange our lives and our way of thinking to remain strong through difficult times? And how does a fitness fanatic CrossFitter like myself and many of you out there adapt and overcome these challenge?

For day 14 or my promised 14 days of the Self-isolation Fitness Challenge Home Workouts, you’ll get a little single-leg strength work under your belt, if you’re able, followed by some grip and core strength.
With a running clock for 14 min
3/3 Squats (alternating Pistols)
Up to 60 seconds Farmer’s Carry
Rest however long it takes you to do the prior round before continuing with the next round.
For this workout, you’ll optionally need a chair or other target to which to squat if you’re not going free-standing (or you could use it for balance) and you’ll need to handled objects of the same weight (or very close) to carry.
