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.

His most recent session takes one of his routines from the Maximus Body book, the Go Longer workout. Like Maxmius' other routines, Go Longer is simple, but absolutely brutal. You'll do 5 pushups, 10 lunges, and 15 squats. For this session, Maximus will lead you through 10 rounds of the trio—but if you're working on your own time and you can handle the volume, you can stack on as many rounds as possible.

Just make sure to make your work count. "For this, quality reps is the key," Maximus says. "A lot of people want to cheat. Don't cheat—full range of motion."
