    Minimal-equipment full body home routine for COVID: pushups, pullups, t-bar deads?

    I live in an apartment without much space, but I could plausibly fit in perhaps one piece of workout equipment. I'm trying to devise a simple routine that hits everything. If I can track down a cheap hex bar on Craigslist, would pushups, pullups, and hex bar deadlifts hit pretty much everything? Obviously not ideal, but we don't live in ideal times and I want to stay fit. Mentally ticking through all the different muscles this routine would seem to hit everything except perhaps rhomboids (no horizontal pull), medial delts (except slightly on the pushups), and upper pecs, but as far as I can see this hits everything else, no?

    Do you have any furniture you can do deadlifts with? I'm thinking a bed frame might work. When it gets easy, you can throw a table or chair on the bed for added weight. When I was a teenager, I used to lift up my 80lb German Shephard for exercise since I didn't have any free weights.

    Unless you live on the ground floor, I would reconsider the hex bar for deadlifts. You can pad the floor to prevent damage but you'd have to do a lot more to prevent vibration.
    I can tell time. Time cannot tell me.

    Formerly LactoseTolerant. I'm not very imaginative.

    I like the hex bar purchase. Handles down for hex bar squats. Handles up for deadlifts. I might recommend sit ups and or leg raises.
