The whole of India is under a 21-day lockdown until April 14 as the government looks to curb the spread of coronavirus pandemic in India and the athletes have been using this time to gym at home and continue to stay fit.
On Tuesday, 2020 Tokyo Olympics was postponed by a year due to coronavirus and with that, India's sole Olympic gold-medallist Abhinav Bindra also called for all camps to be cancelled.
With the athletes now at home, they are taking it to social media to show their fitness routines and inspire people to stay fit and active even indoors.
Rio Olympics bronze medallist wrestler Sakshi Malik posted a video of herself and her husband Satyawart Kadian going through a fierce gyming routine in a confined space.
She captioned the video, "Respecting social distancing, but staying active."
Youth Olympics gold medallist weightlifter 17-year-old Jeremy Lalrinnunga showed his fans a very easy way to stay fit at home by sharing a video of himself skipping.
