There are plenty of high-intensity workouts out there in the world for people who are already pretty intense – you know, the ones with the rippling muscles and the low body fat – but what about us regular people? Or, even better, what about somebody just starting out with exercise?
I have just the thing for you.
The trick with high intensity is to control the interval length. Somebody who has been working out for awhile can handle 30, 40, or 50 seconds of high heart rate work, but if you’re just starting your fitness journey, we want to manage that heart rate in 10 or 15 second intervals and make sure that you’re getting enough rest between rounds to bring your heart rate down a little (but not all the way). And that’s why I find the :10/:10 to be just about perfect. Ten seconds of work plus ten seconds of rest equals an awesome sweat-fest!
Check out the video below to watch the exercises and see how they’re done. If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a comment!
