While the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has halted the cadence of everyday life for just about everyone, the world is now beginning to adjust. We're all handling the challenges of social distancing and self-isolation differently—but that doesn't mean that we have to go it completely alone in every sense.

At Men's Health, we're using this period as an opportunity to build up our community and share as much useful, positive information as possible. For everyone stuck missing their typical workout routines with gyms and fitness centers closed down, we've done our best to provide as many at-home workout options as possible. But that's just the start. We're also hosting live workout sessions on Instagram with some of our favorite trainers to fill the fitness class-shaped void in your daily routine.

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.

"I am all about the basics: bodyweight work," he says. "You don't need any gear, you just need a good attitude and a will to suffer a little bit. You just need to show up and not quit."

To wit, this workout consists of just three moves. But it won't be easy just because it's simple. You'll be tasked with doing 100 reps of each of the exercises—using perfect form, of course—resting only when you absolutely need to take a break. The sets don't need to be finished under a specific time cap, but if you'd like to set a bar for yourself to make the challenge more interesting, start a clock to see how long it takes. Next time you're looking for a quick, gear-free session, try to best your score.
