At the beginning of every round, begin with an aggressive 1:00 run followed by a :15 second sprint. Then move into your weighted exercises. These exercises are a ladder. Your reps will go down by 2 each time. (If you choose to start with 20 pushups, those reps will go down by 4 each time). complete the reps of the 3 exercises followed by an optional 1:00 rest. Repeat for your next round.
