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.

David Freeman, national program manager of Life Time's Alpha program, hosted the latest session from his home. The strength interval workout, which requires your to have a pair of kettlebells (or another similar load you can hold in the same way), a short platform, some support for your knees, and a timer, will challenge you to use your muscles and work as hard as possible in short bursts of effort.

Freeman took the training outdoors for today's session. "We're gonna work a little upper body, a little lower body," he says. "A lot of energy throughout the whole workout." You'll need to bring the heat to keep up—but it's just for 12 minutes. If you're used to slow, long workouts that don't feature any real intensity, it's time to change up your game.
