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.
This week’s IG Live workout schedule will keep you on your fitness schedule! All workouts start at noon EST and are stored on our IGTV for later viewing! ************************************* Monday: @davidoteyfit filling in for @donsaladino Tuesday: @gerrenliles Wednesday: @freezy30 Thursday: @bobbymaximus Friday: @ebenezersamuel23 Saturday: @jschumacher_dpt Get after it!!

David Freeman, national program manager of Life Time's Alpha program, hosted the latest session from his home. The strength interval workout will challenge you to use your muscles and work as hard as possible in short bursts of effort.
You'll need a kettlebell for this workout, or some other load that can be handled in the same way. You'll only be working for about 13 minutes—but you'll need to be focused to stay on balance. The 2:1 work to rest ratio can be challenging, so be sure to grab a weight you can manage for the session.
Freeman makes a point to provide a 'life habit' for every single workout session to encourage everyone to think beyond their sweat. His theme for today is H.E.L.P., which stands for Honesty Empathy Love Positivity. "Use these four elements within helping," Freeman suggests, challenging everyone to make space for other people from all walks of life.
