20 Seconds For The Win

This workout is a HIIT circuit workout involving changes in speed. Perform exercise 1 at a moderate pace for 20sec. Then perform that same exercise for an additional 20sec moving as quickly as possible with good technique. Then allow 20sec rest before moving on to exercise 2. Perform exercise 2 in the same fashoin; 20sec medium pace, 20sec fast pace, 20sec rest. Complete the entire workout for a total of 3 rounds in this same pattern of 20sec moderate, 20sec fast, 20sec rest. If possible, you may find it helpful to use a heavier weight for the first 20sec and then a lighter weight for the fast 20sec. This will help you to really get the strength and speed benefits from the workout. Remeber to split time between right and left sides if an exercise has a right and left component to it.
