To stay fit, social media sensation Jean Titus hits the gym five days a week for about 1½ hours each session. He’ll do a few days that are a body-part split—like legs on Mondays and chest or back on Tuesdays—but then performs a HIIT or full-body workout for the other couple of days. “I do not do a lot of cardio besides HIIT, and that’s because cardio can sometimes be counterproductive to the maintenance of lean muscle,” he says. “HIIT is a better form of cardio. It raises your heart rate, keeps it up, and works your cardiovascular system. On occasion I will go out and do some full sprints, like eight to 10 full-on sprints. But to sit there on a cardio machine for 30 minutes or more, no, I do not do that.”

Directions:

Complete 500 reps in 30 minutes or less. Attempt once or twice a week. Titus’ last effort clocked in at 24 minutes and 19 seconds.
