Jennifer Lopez tends to keep her sweat sessions interesting with a wide range of workouts. But even when you’re limited to exercising in your living room, you can still train like a superstar with a workout you can do from home.

J.Lo’s longtime trainer, David Kirsch, recently shared a five-move workout on Instagram that’s meant for those days you’re stuck at home (right now, every day). You only need a few tools to get the job done: a weighted medicine ball, kettlebells (or dumbbells), and a box or sturdy footstool—something that you can safely jump onto.

Between the weighted box jumps and decline pushups, it won’t take long to work up a sweat. Hey, who knows—with the help of Kirsch, we could emerge from our quarantine cocoons a little bit stronger.

Train like Jennifer Lopez with a 5-move workout you can do at home

1. Weighted box jumps

  1. Stand in front of a box or sturdy footstool.
  2. With a weighted exercise ball in your hands, squat down and jump onto the box with both feet, landing in a squat.
  3. Carefully return to the floor one foot at a time and repeat.

2. Box jump side lunges

  1. Stand to the side of your box with your right foot on the box and the weighted exercise ball in both hands.
  2. Jump your left foot up to the box, replacing your right foot as you land into a side squat on the opposite side of the box.
  3. Alternate your feet, keeping a smooth motion as you jump and lunge from side to side.

3. Decline box pushups

  1. Get into a pushup position on the floor, then secure your feet on the box.
  2. Keeping your body in a 90-degree angle, raise your body down into a pushup.
  3. Straighten your arms and repeat.

4. Kettlebell overhead press squats

  1. Stand with your feet slightly wider than shoulder width apart with a kettlebell in each hand.
  2. Rotate the kettlebells up toward your head so your arms are in a touchdown position.
  3. Squat, then press the kettle bells overhead.
  4. Rotate the kettlebells back down to your starting position and repeat.

5. Weighted box crunches

  1. Sit on the edge of your box with your hands supporting you and the weighted exercise ball between your knees.
  2. Crunch your body at a right angle, bringing your knees in toward your chest.
