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 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. Most of the session will be focused on unilateral work, so get ready to focus on both sides of your body. The whole session only takes about 12 minutes once you get to workbut if you move with the type of intention Freeman does, you'll be challenged to your limits.
His theme for the session is T.I.M.E., an acronym that stands for Teach Inspire Motivate Empower. "You want to think of how you're using your time," says Freeman. "You can make all the money in the world because you're so focused on your work, but if you don't have the health to be around to spend all that money, what're you working for?... You need to be in your best mind, body, and soul before you can be your best."
