A monsoon surge in the South China Sea that is forecast to persist over the next few days saw temperatures dip across parts of Singapore to 22.8 deg C recently.
This is below an earlier estimated minimum temperature of 23 deg C.
And the weather is predicted to get even cooler in the next few days, falling to as low as 22 deg C, according to a Facebook post by the National Environment Agency (NEA).
This all adds up to rain, rain, and more rain, which is a real bummer for anyone trying to stay fit, given the weather makes it hard to head out for runs, workouts, or even get around to the gym, given the flash floods.
But that doesn’t mean you should just stay home and pig out on McDelivery while binge-watching on Netflix– we’ve pulled together the best and most popular Men’s Health workouts that you can do in your own living room to maintain your fitness regime.

BONUS PROTIP: Do You Know Your Odds Of Getting Laid Just Got Bumped Up?
There’s evidence that suggests we actually want to have sex more when it’s cold and rainy — whether we’re aware of this impulse or not. Basically, your odds of being able to Netflix and chill have just massively increased!
“When people are cold, they crave warmth and closeness,” says Marisa Cohen, Ph.D., an associate professor of psychology at St. Francis College in Brooklyn and author of From First Kiss to Forever: A Scientific Approach to Love. “That can lead to the desire to couple up with another person and have sex.” In fact, there’s a specific term to describe this phenomenon: cuffing season, or the desire to enter a relationship during the cold-weather months.
