I ran this workout this to much sweat, smiles and swearing so I had to share it with you all. Thanks to one of my old trainers, Drew, for coming up with this awesome number.
Intervals of Destruction
Type: Strength, HIT
Time: 45 minutes
Equipment: Bands, Mats, Dumbells, Kettlebells, MedBalls, Interval Timer
Split your clients into four groups. If you only have a small group you can have them do this together.
Set up four stations, each with two exercises as indicated below. Set a timer or use your stop watch to set the intervals 60 seconds, 30 seconds, 30 seconds, 30 seconds.
Clients will do exercise A for quality for the 60 seconds, then rest for 30 seconds, then exercise B for quantity for 30 seconds and then rest for another 30 seconds.
For example, station one would look like this:
- 60 seconds of deep KB Goblet Squats
- 30 seconds of rest
- 30 seconds of fast Push Ups
- 30 seconds of rest to change stations.
Complete one full rotation of the circuit and then take a 2 minute break before repeating again.
For those doing a 60 minute session, you should be able to complete 3 rounds of this circuit (with a 2 minute break at the end each time). For those doing 45 minutes you should be able to complete two full rounds plus the shortened Finisher round (see below).
The Exercise Stations
As always guys, if you haven’t got the equipment feel free to change the exercises to suit what you do have.
- KB Goblet Squats
- Push Ups
- DB Bent Over Row
- Band Shoulder Presses
- Plank Rocks
- Tuck Jump Squats – get low into a squat between each tuck jump
For a shortened round to fill in time at the end do one circuit of 30 seconds, 30 seconds, 30 seconds. That is 30 seconds of exercise A, 30 seconds of exercise B and then 30 seconds of rest to change stations.
Stretch and ask clients what kind of stuff they would like to do more of at your bootcamp.

I was just wondering what timer apps for iphone allow 3 different interval times. I have tabata timer pro.
Any timer suggestions?
Will I don’t have an iPhone, I have an Android phone. I use a free app on that called ‘A HIIT Interval Timer’. It allows you to customize and save multiple intervals.
iPhone has a free Gymboss app. I use it for all my interval times.
