"No Excuse" Circuit Interval

Posted Mar 16 2009 3:19pm
Even though I'm supposed to be entirely off cardio this month, as I already fessed up over the weekend, I did sneak in a short incline workout on Saturday.

Well, I really messed up this morning because one of the first emails I opened was from Craig and it contained a new, tempting, torturous interval circuit he just brewed up. I've received so many emails recently from CFB* readers asking for interval training options, that I really wanted to give this a test drive to see if it was worth posting (which it obviously was!).

I actually really liked this circuit because it can be done sans any equipment if you jog as your warm-up/cool-down, making it yet another "no excuse" workout!
  • Warm-up - 5 minutes at a moderate pace
  • Interval #1 (60 seconds at 8/10 intensity level) [note: I used a jump rope - if you don't have a rope, fake it]
  • Without rest, do 5 Spiderman Pushups per side
  • Rest 1 minute before moving to Interval #2
  • Interval #2 (45 seconds at 8/10 intensity level)
  • Without rest, do 10 Mountain Climbers per side
  • Rest 1 minute before moving to Interval #3
  • Interval #3 (60 seconds at 8/10 intensity level)
  • Without rest, do 5 Bird Dogs per side - brace your abs!
  • Rest 1 minute before repeating Intervals #1 - #3 one more time each
  • Cool-down for 5 minutes





Train hard; stay strong.

Peace.
