Daily Fitness Challenges To Keep You Moving During Lockdown

Stuck inside? We want you to get up, get active, and share your daily progress with us.



The spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has forced millions of people to interrupt their daily lives to try to flatten the spread’s curve. Want to keep moving even while you’re stuck at home? The #MHDailyLockdownChallenge holds you accountable with one simple move every day.

But there’s more to it than just nailing one exercise, one time. Some challenges will ask you to pump out a ton of reps, beat the clock, or hold a tough position for long enough to make your muscles scream. Gutting it to the finish and completing every single one is up to you—so get ready to work.

We want you to share your hard work with us, and we’ll blast it out on our IG Story every day. And even though you might be working out on your own (thanks, social distancing!), you’ll want to get your gym buddies involved, too—so we hope you’ll combat that social distance with some social media connection by tagging them in to take the challenge.

These moves are from our Speed Shred bodyweight programme that we created alongside personal trainer Trevor Lagerwey. You can sign up for the full training and meal on the Speed Shred website.
