Timed Pyramid Scheme

Jon Hinds from Monkey Bar Gym shares an interesting format for an interval workout.  Here he presents a selection of 6 movements that get performed each round, with differing work/rest intervals per round.

Specifically, it breaks down like this by round:

  1. 30 seconds work, followed by 30 seconds rest
  2. 40 seconds work, followed by 20 seconds rest
  3. 50 seconds work, followed by 10 seconds rest
  4. 40 seconds work, followed by 20 seconds rest
  5. 30 seconds work, followed by 30 seconds rest

You can go with Jon’s choice of movements or get creative with your own mix.  Either way under this scheme the result is an intense 30 minutes of work.

Only have 20 minutes to work with?  No problem, just choose four movements.

You get the idea.  This can be another card in your box of creative workout recipes.
