Once This Total-Body Workout Starts, You Won’t Stop Moving

Once This Total-Body Workout Starts, You Won’t Stop Moving
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.

Men’s Health fitness director Ebenezer Samuel, C.S.C.S., creator of the New Rules of Muscle program on All Out Studio, hosted the most recent session. This total body routine uses a resistance band to ramp up the effort. “The name of today’s game is going to be constant movement,” says Samuel. “It’s going to be a very fast-paced total-body workout.”

        Before you go...

        Democratic norms are being stress-tested all over the world, and the past few years have thrown up all kinds of questions we didn't know needed clarifying – how long is too long for a parliamentary prorogation? How far should politicians be allowed to intervene in court cases? To monitor these issues as closely as we have in the past we need your support, so please consider donating to The Climax News Room.
