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 centres closed down, we've done our best to provide as many at-home workout options as possible. But that's just the start. We've also hosted live workout sessions on Instagram with some of our favourite trainers to fill the fitness class-shaped void in your daily routine.

Sean Garner, the creator of the Men's Health 6-Week Sweat Off program has now hosted his second live home workout session from his balcony. This routine, which you can take on using your bodyweight and a bench – or for those of us without gym equipment at our disposal, a couch or ottoman – is designed to increase in difficulty with each round, so you'll be gassed out in under 10 minutes.

Hopefully, you were able to catch the session live and joined in the fun. For everyone else, here's the workout so you can follow along at home.
