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. Today, he is using a piece of gear: a resistance band. But he chose the implement because of how easily it is to carry on-the-go, making this workout perfect when you're away from home or short on time to break out all your gear.
"I do work out every day, but I'm not in the gym for three hours a day," says Maximus. "There are days where I, like you, have only 10 or 20 or 15 minutes and I have to get stuff done in a fast and efficient and effective way."
The session follows one of Maximus' most infamous protocols, the Trinity. Using three exercises, he challenges you to perform more reps than you might think is possible in a short amount of time—in this case, just 10 minutes. For this fast and furious variation, you'll do pushups, banded curls, and banded strict presses (overhead presses). Stand on the band to create tension for the curls and presses.

Perform as many reps as possible in 10 minutes. When you fatigue too much from one exercise, move on to the next with as little rest as possible.
