10 Star Athletes Demonstrate Their Home Workout Routines

Mar 27, 2020

With the COVID-19 pandemic intensifying around the world, many governments have told businesses – including fitness centers and martial arts gyms – to close their doors for the next several weeks.

That has made it difficult for people to get their sweat on, but ONE Championship’s superstar athletes have continued to find ways to stay in shape by working out at home or outside in an open space (all while maintaining a safe distance from other people, of course).

Some of the martial artists are using training staples such as bodyweight exercises and shadowboxing in their routines, and a few warriors have also come up with some more creative ideas to stay fit.

Watch these 10 videos to see how the promotion’s leading stars are staying active in the comfort of their own homes.

Bibiano Fernandes

Reigning ONE Bantamweight World Champion Bibiano “The Flash” Fernandes has created a home gym in his spare room.

The Brazilian is doing strength work alongside his core stability and mobility training to ensure that he is finely-tuned in all areas.
