A Little Extra Push
This workout is a HIIT circuit workout involving changes in speed. Perform exercise 1 at a moderate pace for 15sec. Then perform that same exercise for an additional 15sec moving as quickly as possible with good technique. Next, move onto the second exercise in set 1 which is an active recovery drill for 30sec. Repeat this first set of 2 exercises for 6 total rounds before moving onto set 2. You will complete set 2 in the same pattern of 6 rounds of 15sec moderate speed, 15sec fast speed, and 30sec active recovery drill. 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.
