When the Covid-19 pandemic halted the cadence of everyday life for just about everyone in 2020, fitness was one of the few reliable pillars for quarantined folks to rely on for some sense of normalcy. While everyone handled the challenges of social distancing and self-isolation differently, communities sprang up online and IRL to make sure that no one had to go it alone. There would still be group sweat sessions, even if gyms were closed and you couldn’t turn to your workout buddy for a high five after a tough set.
At Men’s Health, we’ve used this pandemic period as an opportunity to build up our community and share as much useful, positive information as possible. We ramped up our library of at-home workout options, attempting to provide some normalcy for everyone stuck missing their typical training routines with gyms and fitness centers closed down. But that was just the start.
We’ve hosted live workout sessions on Instagram with some of our favorite trainers to fill the fitness class-shaped void in everyone’s daily routine, providing community and a space for everyone to get a sweat on, every single weekday. Even though conditions have improved and stabilized in many places, we’re going to keep training with you.
Bobby Maximus, former UFC fighter, fitness personality, and author of the Men’s Health Maximus Body book, hosted the latest session. Maximus makes a point to train without equipment even when he has a fully-stocked gym at his disposal—so creating an accessible session for guys stuck at home without access to gear fits perfectly to his training style. This is a typical Maximus workout, which means that you’ll work hard, work fast, and be done quick. But that doesn’t mean you won’t be pushed to your limits.
Sometimes, when you get stuck in a training rut, you need to shake things up. This workout does just that. All it takes is 10 minutes—but you won’t know exactly what’s coming next until Maximus calls out the next exercise. “You’re not really going to get a warning,” Maximus says. You’ll just have to, as he says, “go, go, go.”
The workout does have some structure. You’ll use the Every Minute on the Minute (EMOM) protocol, so you’ll know the work will be done quickly. All you have to do is get moving.
