Stuck at home due to coronavirus, Penn State coach James Franklin stole dumbbells from his gym


Penn State coach James Franklin is cooped up at home with his family amid the COVID-19 pandemic, just like millions of other Americans.


And as he, like the rest of us, quickly discovered, working out while stuck at home can be quite the challenge — especially with someone dominating his condo complex’s community gym.


Not only is he a bit of a germaphobe, but his youngest daughter has sickle cell anemia, something that significantly increases her risk of catching the coronavirus.


“He said, ‘Whoever stole the 25-pound weights, could you bring them back?’ So then I wrote a little note that said, ‘Well, could you stop dominating the weightroom for three hours a day?’ ”


Franklin, who is going into his seventh year at Penn State while boasting an impressive 56-23 record with the Nittany Lions, has also sent them at-home workout ideas.


They’re even suggesting bodyweight workouts where players wear backpacks carrying anything they can find to increase resistance, per the report.
