While on lockdown in an Alabama hotel without access to a gym, action star Dolph Lundgren was forced to devise his own quarantine fitness regime in order to maintain his muscle density as much as possible. Using minimal equipment, Lundgren came up with a circuit training program that would help him stay fit and work the major muscle groups.

He recently shared his workout, which just requires a mini band and a resistance tube, in an Instagram post.

Lundgren begins with 15 reps on each side of the one arm shoulder press, a move which he has renamed the Arnold press, for his "good buddy" Arnold Schwarzenegger. He follows that with 15 carefully controlled bicep curls, 15 rows and 15 pulldowns, which he completes by looping the band around a railing.

He then engages his posterior chain with the one-legged Romanian deadlift and slow descent squats, works his back and shoulders with overhead extensions, and trains his core with narrow pushups.

Lundgren is perhaps best known for playing the antagonist Ivan Drago in the Rocky movies; a role he reprised 30 years later in the spinoff Creed II, where he demonstrated just as formidable a physical presence as he did during his first appearance.

However, now that he's in his sixties, the still-shredded Lundgren has learned to listen to his body: "I have a plan in the evening what to do the next day, but I adjust on how I feel," he told Men's Health. "If I don’t feel like doing something, I won’t go."
