Enhanced Interval Training
Been experimenting with some different workouts lately. It's warming up here so im trying to do some outdoors training. There is a cool park with a marked off track on it 5 minutes from home. This is a cool workout protocol I came across called enhanced interval training. Interval training has great carry over to jiu-jitsu conditioning.
This workout is also known as the Interval Challenge.
There are no designated rest periods and you can rest as needed. Your goal is to complete the circuit four times, as fast as possible.
-20 Push Ups
-400 Meter Run
Complete four circuits
Burpees-start in the bottom position of a squat with your hands on the ground, kick your feet back to the bottom position of a push up, then push up and return to your feet.
I managed to get the workout done in 24 minutes on my first attempt, will try beat it ay subsequent workouts.
Im doing 2 strength/power workouts a week and 2 conditioning workouts a week, with this being one of them.
Let me know how you go.
