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.
"You can get fit in 10 minutes," he says. "That's a fact. But—you've got to be willing to give a piece of your soul. You see, intensity is the inverse of duration."
Especially if you're unfamiliar with Maximus, this pronouncement might sound extreme of even frightening—but he's really just making a simple point: if you want to get fast results, you have to be willing to work hard.
"We're gonna go fast, we're gonna go intense, and then we're gonna get out of here," he says. Today, you'll do that using three bodyweight exercise and an EMOM format. Grab your timer, set it for 10 minutes, and get moving.
Bobby Maximus' 10-Minute Triplet Workout
Set a timer for 10 minutes. At the start of each new minute, perform 10 reps of each exercise. For the remainder of the minute, rest. When the next minute begins, you have a fresh set of each move. Continue until the timer hits zero.
