Just in the nick of time, legendary body builder, actor and former Governor of California (and for many of us, our idol), Arnold Schwarzenegger has shared his no gym work out routine. This couldn’t have come at a better time with all of us stuck in our home unable to hit the gym. Arnie has penned down his old school, no-gym workout which will be a brilliant aid to keep you fit, physically and mentally without leaving the house.

“There are a lot of things we can’t control during this crisis, so we need to focus on what we can control. I wrote up my old no-gym required workout for all of you, as promised, because we can control our fitness” – Schwarzenegger wrote on his Instagram with these picture below.
