I have been doing minor stuff with dumbbells in the call room for years. We(the nursing stuff and I) just started doing squats on the hr(using military time) so 2300 gets you 23 squats, etc and lunges on the half hr. That works out to 169 squats per 12 hr shift. 

Anyone else have workout routines for the longer shifts?

I do “old man” pushups twice daily against the bathroom countertop.  It’s helped with the 70 lbs weight drop.  I just might be in the best shape of my life at 61 y/o!  Walking 2+ mi./day.  Back down close to PA school weight 81’-83’...Just with less hair.

Stairs. Throw down blankets and do crunches, pushups. Will bring resistance bands to work.

Actually have a gym at the hospital (empty at night) but it's closed due to COVID

At a previous position, I would do 9 flights of stairs with a few of the nurses. We would start after morning rounds and do a set every 2 hours for the rest of the day.

The hospital I did my IM rotation at had 30 stories. I would only use the stairs. I love running stairs and have found several long flights near my house that I incorporate into my runs.
