Dutchess Crossfit has come up with some great at-home workouts while gyms are closed using just your body.

Now that we're all stuck at home, it's a little more difficult to go to the gym. Primarily, because they're closed. But there are still tons of ways to stay active and get a great workout at home. We talked to Steve Bierfeldt at Dutchess Crossfit who gave us some tips about working out and nutrition.

For at-home workouts, Steve said the best thing to do is something that you're actually going to stick with. If it's active and you're going to do it, it's a good thing to do. Steve said bodyweight workouts are great because they require no equipment. Things like burpees, pushups, jumping jacks, and sit-ups are all great. You can see one of the videos that Steve at Dutchess Crossfit posted on their Instagram right below. Dutchess Crossfit is posting two workout videos a day on their Instagram.

Steve also said that if you're looking for some weight, but don't have any, that plenty of items around the house will give you the weight you need. A gallon of milk weighs about 8 pounds or maybe try using a backpack filled with books. Laundry detergent could be a great weight too. I've even seen someone bench pressing their couch.

As far as nutrition, a lot of people have been stocking up on canned goods. Steve said that canned goods are typically filled with a lot of preservatives and salt. As an alternative, Steve said that frozen foods are better and can last as long. Frozen vegetables are a great option that he recommends.
