Working out from home during COVID-19: Jason Campbell's easy 10-step workout

Working out from home during COVID-19: Jason Campbell's easy 10-step workout

Looking to stay in shape while stuck inside during the COVID-19 pandemic? Retired quarterback Jason Campbell joined NBC Sports Washington's Julie Donaldson to demonstrate some easy moves that everyone can do at home to stay fit while the gym is closed. "Find an hour in the day and make sure you get out and make sure you keep yourself active," Campbell said. "We can all lose sight of what's going to come after this. Right now we're in the midst of a storm, but it won't last forever."

First: Jump rope for around two minutes to get your heart rate up. Don't have a jump rope? Just pretend that you do and do the same motion. 

Second: Time for your abs! 30 toe touches. 

Third: Still on that core. Reverse crunches - hands behind your hand, laying on your back, feet in the air. 

Four: Bicycles. But a pro tip: "When everybody does bicycles, they like to go really fast. But if you go really fast," Campbell told Donaldson, "you're not getting the right type of burn." So. 30 Bicycles. Slowly.

Five:  Do step 2-5 two more times through.

Six: Planks! Campbell recommends a full minute on a balance ball. No balance ball in your house? That's fine, just plank. "Keep your core tight," Campbell advised. "And remember it's OK to breathe."

Seven: Lunges with a kettlebell. No kettlebell? Just do a squat with hands straight out for 30 seconds.

Eight: Bench press. No bench press? Try pushups for 30 seconds.

Nine: Five pull-ups. Or do step-ups with dumbells. Three sets of 10. No dumbbells? Lunge walks - hands behind your head, just step and lunge. 

Ten:  Finish with cardio. Bike, run, walk, elliptical.

If the Redskins go with a new name, quarterback Dwayne Haskins has a favorite

If the Redskins go with a new name, quarterback Dwayne Haskins has a favorite

As the Redskins name-change debate continues to gain steam, people everywhere are weighing in on potential options for a switch.

Scanning social media, the leaders in the clubhouse seem to be the Washington Warriors, Redtails and Redhawks.

At least one of those names has the blessing of a player fans hope will eventually become the face of the franchise.

With several former Ohio State players on the team -- Dwayne Haskins, Chase Young, Terry McLaurin -- Bleacher Report's Matt Miller tossed around the idea of changing the Redskins to the Buckeyes. Quarterback Dwayne Haskins responded saying he liked the Redtails.

The Redtails were a group of Tuskegee airmen, all-black fighter pilots during World War II.

Haskins said "that's if we have to change the name," making clear he isn't taking a stance on whether the team should change the name.

Reports have suggested a name change is likely before the 2020 season begins.

Report: Globetrotters willing to sell Washington Generals name to Redskins

Report: Globetrotters willing to sell Washington Generals name to Redskins

As the Washington football team mulls over the increasingly likely decision to change its name from the Redskins, the parent company of the Harlem Globetrotters suggested Friday that it'd be interested in giving the team another option.

According to Action Network's Darren Rovell, a spokesman for Herschend Entertainment said the company would "love" for the Redskins or NFL to call about buying the rights to the Washington Generals name.

The Generals are the frequent opponent of the Globetrotters, almost always on the losing end of the fun basketball competition. Herschend Entertainment owns trademarks for both the Generals and Globetrotters.

“We think that the Globetrotters are right up there as the most liked team in the world with Manchester United and the New York Yankees,” Brett Meister, the spokesman, said. “Our heritage includes the Washington Generals.”

The Generals also have other local ties, as the team's former owner/coach/player Red Klotz was a member of the 1948 title-winning Baltimore Bullets.
