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!!

Gerren Liles, founding Mirror trainer and creator of All Out Studio's High Power HIIT program, hosted the latest session. His HIIT workouts are designed to cram as much safe, effective work into as little time as possible.
Today's workout requires some space to move around and four small objects to use as a prop—dumbbells if you have them, water bottles, or even sneakers will do. Otherwise, as is usual for one of Liles' routines, you'll use only your bodyweight. You'll be tasked with reacting quickly to respond to Liles' commands for this non-stop session, so make sure you're ready to get ready to work.
Gerren Liles' Line and Back HIIT Workout
High Knee Skips
Alternating Lateral Squats
Inchworm to Shoulder Tap
Low Lunge to Twist
Place the four objects out in front of you in a row, spaced about a foot apart from each other and six feet from your own starting position. Assign each object a number, 1 through 4. You'll begin at the starting position performing an exercise, until Liles calls out a number (or a series of numbers) associated with the objects in front of you. Run up to the row of props, touch the object that he called out, then return to the starting point to begin performing the exercise. If he calls out multiple numbers, return to the starting line after each touch. Each round last for 3 minutes.
Pushups with Shoulder Taps
Lunge to Split Jumps
Plank to Hip Dips
Burpee 180° Turn
