Hidilyn Diaz is not letting the Movement Control Order in Malaysia keep her from working out.

In a video posted on her social media accounts, Diaz showed that she can train even without barbels. Instead, the Filipina weightlifter used a long bamboo stick and two big bottles filled with water.

"This is me during (the) Movement Control Order," Diaz wrote. "No barbel, no problem."

The Movement Control Order was implemented by the Malaysian government to help curb the spread of the novel coronavirus. 

Diaz, who is also set to host an online weightlifting seminar via Zoom, encouraged her followers to "stay healthy, stay safe, and stay strong" amid the pandemic.
