As the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic spreads, celebrity response has been uneven, to say the least. While some notable stars have done little more than sing a song, others, like Arnold Schwarzenegger, have used their large platforms to be advocate for people to focus on public health.

Schwarzenegger has shared multiple Instagram posts about the current need for social distancing and self-isolation during the current moment. He’s advocated from the hot tub to scold spring breakers for refusing orders to avoid large crowds and hung out with his beloved pets Lulu and Whiskey to remind his fans that they should stay home. But his latest post gives his followers more than just advice.

The bodybuilding icon shared his go-to no-gym workout routine, with a message for fans to keep moving during these uncertain times. “There are a lot of things we can’t control during this crisis, so we need to focus on what we can control,” he wrote in the post’s caption. “I wrote up my old no-gym required workout for all of you, as promised, because we can control our fitness.”

Followers were directed to go to Reddit, where Schwarzenegger posted the full details of the bodyweight routine. “Even without a gym, we can also control our physical fitness during this pandemic,” he wrote. “Body weight, or freehand, training is the oldest method in the world. Gladiators and Vikings didn’t have gymnasiums. I started my own fitness journey with chin-ups on a tree branch by a lake in Austria.”
