Robbie Amell, the actor you might know as Firestorm from CW’s The Flash and Amazon’s upcoming Upload (dropping May 1 on Prime), is currently faced with that dilemma. His situation is particularly tough, with a six-month-old baby in the house. Time, space, and energy might be limited—but Amell still found some time to lead us through his fitness routine from his garage in California.
Thankfully, a hectic schedule is already normal for Amell with his shooting schedule, before the baby or the pandemic came along. He’s used to flexibility in his routine so the adjustment isn’t quite as painful as it might have been. “My workouts consist of 10, 15 minute increments because I don’t always have an hour or an hour and a half,” he says.
Amell led us through some of his favourite moves, broken down by muscle group—so don’t try to recreate this whole routine step-by-step. He might have some more equipment than you do in your home, but you can still cherrypick some exercises that fit with your routine. Just make sure that you’re working within your abilities.
More than anything else, Amell encourages everyone training at home to prioritise activity over everything else. “Obviously, times are really weird right now, but I think it’s really important to try and stay active, whether it’s pushups, situps, burpees, jumping jacks, you know, anything to just get the blood flowing and get the endorphins going,” he says.
