Today’s workout is from Leslie Suess, a two time winner of our Annual Bootcamp Ideas Competition (2017 and 2018). Here’s a workout she shared with us on BootCraft last month.
This workout works a bit like a roller coaster of intensity. It will keep your clients challenged without burning them out too soon in the workout.
Length: 30 minutes
Equipment needed: Potentially dumbbells
This drill can be ran indoors or outdoors. You can use equipment or nothing at all. Sky is the limit! I do both. Outside I have a medium sized hill and a bench. Indoors I have a track, stairs, bike, and access to dumbbells. For an outdoor workout substitute any cardio move in place of track or stairs.
For this workout your participants will perform 2 minutes of a slow cardio based movement i.e., Jog/Walk followed by 20 repetitions of a high intensity plyometric move.
When done with the plyometric, they will immediately perform 2 minutes of a fast cardio move ie: Sprint., then finish with a low intensity set of 20 reps.
This repeats and gets harder along the way.
Indoors use track, stairs or bike for the running components.
Complete all exercises below with no rest:
2 minutes Jog or Walk around track
20 Jump Squats
2 minute Sprints
20 Prisoner or Goblet Squats

Karen Ann Hopley says
I’m assuming rest between sets? How can you sprint for 2 minutes without any rest and go on with good form? I like the format, but think rest between sets would be appropriate.
Kyle Wood says
Hey Karen, yes you could do 2 minutes of 20m sprints (sprint 20m, walk back, sprint 20m, walk back, etc).
