You’ll pile on the reps in a short window of time—and your recovery periods will only get shorter.

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.

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 bodyweight-only session takes three exercises and forces you to perform them at max capacity. The structure mimics a similar EMOM routine Liles introduced a few weeks ago, but given the difficulty of the movements and the number of reps you likely have to complete, you’ll have an extra 30 seconds to get your reps completed. Once you’re done, you get to rest and recover—but you have to finish your reps first.
