Students Use Cinderblocks to Work Out After Gym at Indiana College Closes

Students from Trine University in Angola, Indiana, found a way to work out after their school’s gym closed while observing the COVID-19 social distancing precautions on March 16.

The video shows five male students using cinderblocks as weights to do upper body exercises.

Trine Unversity student Noah Benzing captured the video. Benzing posted the video on his Twitter account with the caption: “No gym no problems…the grind doesn’t stop out here.”

Benzing told Storyful the members of his fraternity, Sigma Phi Epsilon Chapter House, are still at school and are self-quarantining at their fraternity house. They still wanted to maintain their fitness, so they opted to use the cinderblocks for their hour-long workout. Credit: Noah Benzing via Storyful
