Category: Running

Method: Interval Training with Plyometrics

Purpose: Anaerobic Conditioning

Equipment: One DB or KB each, Markers

This workout involves progressive work:rest time intervals, starting with phosphate energy system and progressing through to the lactate. Everyone gets to finish together, no matter what their fitness level.

Participants are given a set time period at the beginning of each round to complete the task. They must shuttle between the cones the prescribed number of times before commencing burpees. Place a cone halfway (at 15m) for walkers or those who cannot run.

If some people are still doing burpees at the end of the time limit then regress the intensity of their burpees as per the burpee video.
