What everyday objects, or household objects, would be good to workout with? Can anyone recommend a routine to do? I have some weights and a bar at home, but I kinda want something heavier or different during this whole lockdown.

Same problem here, local gym has closed and I'm stuck at home. All I can suggest in terms of staying fit is find yourself an area in your house or garden where you will feel comfortable working out and do basic HIT exercises and ab workouts. The mostly consist of crunches, sit-ups and leg raises but if you also want to work on strength I suggest maximising the amount of push-ups and squats you can do in 10 minutes. I do this by doing x amount of push ups with a 1 minute rest in between. Do this with squats as well and it should be a decent stay-at-home work out (this can basically replace weighted workouts and focus on conditioning your current strength rather than building more muscle).

Thanks a bunch. I’ve been doing the squats, where I do 100, but if I do say 50 or 30 at once I subtract that from 100, then count down how long I have to rest. E.g, I do 30 squats, rest for 70 seconds, then do another say 40, rest for 30, etc. But I’ll try the others you have suggested too.
