If you're having trouble keeping fit and avoiding the siren call of snacks during quarantine, Spider-Man himself Tom Holland just may have the motivation you need.
He's been on social media doing all kinds of handstand tricks and...well it's really quite something.
But don't worry, if your response to the very thought of quarantine exercise is more along the lines of "LOL absolutely not," Ryan Reynolds has you covered. When Holland challenged him to join in all the handstanding, he had the perfect response that will go straight to the heart of anyone eating and lazing their way through this pandemic (so, basically, all of us).
It all began Wednesday when Holland took to his Instagram stories to post some, um, very "inspiring" videos of himself doing a "handstand challenge," in which he put a t-shirt over his exceptional physique while in a handstand.
It went something like this:

Geez, look at that physique—er, technique.

....Where were we?
So Tom Holland did this very strenuous and impressive handstand t-shirt thing, and then challenged some of his celebrity friends—specifically fellow Marvel Comics Universe co-stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Harrison Osterfield, and Ryan Reynolds—to do it as well.

And Reynolds, after digging deep in his heart and soul for the answer, had the perfect—and perfectly succinct—response:

As Reynolds simply put it:
Ryan Reynolds is all of us.
Of course, the internet was definitely on board with Reynolds's refusal.
Ryan Reynolds is all of us right now. https://t.co/quOsno9bIJ— Drew Melbourne (@Drew Melbourne)1585932033.0

And many were feeling it just, like, in general, as a response to life.

So it seems like we have a consensus: we will emphatically not be doing handstands in quarantine.
But for their parts, Osterfield and Gyllenhaal did complete their handstand challenges, to the delight and titillation of internet users everywhere.
