Bobby Maximus, former UFC fighter, fitness personality, and author of the Men's Health Maximus Body book, is taking over your next workout. Maximus makes a point to train without equipment even when he has a fully-stocked gym at his disposal—so creating an accessible session for guys stuck at home without access to gear fits perfectly to his training style.
This quick-hitting, high-rep lower body session is no different than Maximus' other training methods, so get ready to work. You'll be maxing out your work capacity for just 15 minutes. Even though you'll only work for a quarter hour, it'll probably wind up being the toughest thing you do all week.
You'll do three 5-minute rounds, with 1-minute rest periods in between. Unlike other workouts, this is a competition. Your opponent? The clock—and yourself. "I'm on this thing where commitment is binary," says Maximus.
"It's zero or 1, you're committed or you're not. Too often with training, people kind of show up and don't try that hard and go through the motions. Today, I want you to really push."
To win a round, you need to perform the predetermined number of reps before the time runs out. Just make sure you don't shirk on your form to hit your goal.
