Description: Take a step in the right direction and burst through plateaus with this innovative, 30 minute cardio workout! After a five minute warm-up you’ll experience five different intervals. Each interval will be broken down into eight rounds of 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of active recovery. This workout will test your stamina, recovery rate and agility and will maximize your exercise time.
This workout will have you working primarily in zones 3-5. Because of the very limited recovery between intervals, your heart rate will stay elevated for the duration of the workout. When you are in the work phases, you should feel like you’re working at an 8-10/10. During the short active recovery sections, you’re heart rate will go down a little but will most likely stay elevated to a level that feels like a 6-8/10.
All fitness levels can enjoy this workout. The drills can be modified to suit your individual needs as you can control your speed, step height and level of impact. The goal is to have fun and get a great workout so please listen to your body!
