Daily Routine: Five things to do - 29 April

Stay healthy and productive with Olympic Channel's top 5 activities to try while in isolation today, including dance, a Wednesday workout, podcast, and gaming.

Wherever you are in the world, you can still stay productive in isolation.

Thank to the internet, you can listen to podcasts, work out with your favourite athletes and even be inspired to create something from the comforts of your home.

Here are Olympic Channel's top five activities, to help you stay happy and healthy today.

1) Abs with Caeleb Dressel

He was tipped to be the star of the Olympics in 2020, and USA swimmer Caeleb Dressel is working hard to make sure nothing changes in 2021.

The 13-time world champion has been posting abdominal workouts from his home gym that require minimal equipment… maybe just a towel to mop up a bit of sweat!

2) International Dance Day

No matter your ability, for many people dance is a proven reliever of stress, and a great way to boost physical health.

Today, on April 29, people from around the world are having a boogy for #InternationalDanceDay.

Cut some shapes on your own, or upload your effort online to join the fun.

3) Home improvement

Across the Tasman Sea, New Zealand rugby sevens player Ruby Tui has been doing some decorating in isolation.

Among the improvements to her house are a mini rugby pitch to keep her skills in check, and a NZ-themed new paint job!

4) Game against Sarah Sjostrom

Gone are the days when online gaming meant being secluded.

For anyone with access to the internet and a laptop, you can meet new friends online… perhaps including Swedish swimming sensation Sarah Sjostrom!

5) Pandelela Rinong podcast

Pandelea Rinong is a Malaysian sports star, boasting over 228k Instagram followers!

The diver hopes to win her nation’s first Olympic gold medal in the sport, and Olympic Channel caught up with her to find out why she hasn’t enjoyed a birthday at home since 2007!
