The suspension of the MLB season due to the coronavirus outbreak has forced players around the league to get creative with their home workouts.

Gyms are closed and team facilities have been shut down, but that hasn’t stopped Nationals closer Sean Doolittle from staying in shape. While working out by his house, Doolittle decided to bring his dog Sophia in as an extra weight while doing lunges.

A noted bookworm, Doolittle also stacked a few novels on top of each other to keep the leg workout going.

Teammate Max Scherzer may have an MLB catcher living with him to help keep his training regime up to par, but Doolittle didn’t have such luck. Instead, he had to think a little bit more outside the box.

Doolittle’s exercises follow Capitals forward Carl Hagelin posting a video of him training with his one-year-old daughter. They’re not dumbbells or weights, but one way or another athletes are getting those crucial workouts in to stay ready for once their seasons resume—whenever that may be.
