Back to basics! Former Bachelor Tim Robards says self-isolation amid the coronavirus pandemic is the perfect time to get fit at home
Former Bachelor Tim Robards believes Australians should go back to basics when working out at home amid the coronavirus pandemic.
‘It is a good time for us to rethink and get back to absolute basics with our fitness. There is a lot you can do in your living room or backyard,’ Tim told the publication.

Before adding: ‘We should look at the basics to reassess where we have been neglecting ourselves. It is not necessarily a hindrance to not have access to barbels and things like that.
‘There is so much we can still work on that is healthy for us. Learn how to do a handstand or push-up. Now is the time to build those basic foundations.’
Doing his bit to motivate Australians, the 37-year-old will offer his 12-minute ab challenge on his app The Robards Method over the next six weeks for free.

In late February, Tim claimed coronavirus was ‘clickbait’ on an Instagram story Q&A with fans. At the time, 2500 people had died worldwide.
When asked, ‘Has the coronavirus doomed us in your opinion?’ Tim replied: ‘So firstly, look, I will just say my heart goes out to anyone that’s been affected,’ he said.
‘But, at the same time, we have to ask ourselves how much do we buy into the media, when it’s their job to create clickbait and to create headlines and to get their ratings up.’

Tim currently plays Pierce Greyson on the long-running Channel 10 drama Neighbours.
The set of the hit TV soap was shut down last week over coronavirus fears.
At the time, Channel 10 and Fremantle Media said the health and wellbeing of the cast and crew was a priority, and filming would be halted.
‘Neighbours has decided to take a short break this week to ensure the production model in place can withstand any potential impact of the urgent COVID-19 situation,’ a Channel 10 spokeswoman said.
As of Tuesday evening, there have been 2,146 cases of coronavirus and eight deaths.
