Try these five fun activities to ensure your Friday is happy, healthy and productive!

Isolation is no fun... but it can be productive.

As the world continues to work on containing the COVID-19 outbreak, Olympic Channel has found another five activities you can try today from the comfort of your own home that will keep you happy, healthy and entertained.

From elite athlete workouts, to a fascinating conversation you can tune into, we have you covered today!

If you have stairs at home, Carlin Isles has speed drills for you.

The USA rugby sevens flyer is a constant source of inspiration during isolation, in how to self-motivate and make the use of what you have around you.

Just make sure no one is coming round the corner at the top!

If running up stairs isnt your thing, the COM dive team in Texas have created a slightly more intricate challenge to test your mobility.

If youre alone, use #footshoechallenge and see how you shape up online.

Brian Orser is a figure skating double Olympic medallist-turned-coach, who has mentored the likes of Yuzuru Hanyu, Javier Fernandez and Adam Rippon.

We will be giving Brian a call on Instagram live today, so DM us your questions and join us at 2pm UTC (10am EST).

Tune in to see how skaters are coping, and what advice Brian has for keeping active, and also what his thoughts were on the abruptly ended world championships.

He will discuss how the figure skating community is regrouping, and why this is a time when skaters will get to show what kind of athlete they really are, from a leadership and self-improvement perspective, and also in terms of learning new choreography - which are things that can usually only be improved in the off-season.

NB. Tomorrow, 25 April, is the Open Ice event: where a host of star figure skaters will Livestream for the UN Foundation's COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. The donation page can be found here.

Do you let someone unqualified have a go at taming your hair during the lockdown? Or is it time to grow your locks out a bit?

Perhaps the safest option is to shave it off like Michael Phelps has for charity, and you can attribute your new look to a worthy cause.

For the women, how about some Italian inspiration from Federica Pellegrini who has gone for an isolation bob...

USA boxers Mikaela Mayer and Ginny Fuchs may have fancy footwork in the ring, but even they can struggle with learning new skills!

Fuchs will have to take care though, as shes one of the favourites to qualify for Tokyo 2020 at the Pan American Olympic Boxing Qualifier in 2021.

Please get your home owners permission before trying this, and wear protective equipment!
