Pyramid HIIT Workout - Intense Interval Cardio Challenge

With this High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) routine we broke away from our usual interval style of using one specific interval time for all exercises in the routine and swapped it out for a pyramid structure where the intervals get longer each set then work their way back down by the end of the round. The idea is exactly the same as with weight lifting only we use time rather than weight or reps to determine a set.

In this pyramid workout we have put two exercises back to back (using the same interval time) followed by a ten second rest period before moving to the next set. We are only doing a short pyramid group increasing by ten seconds each set, starting a 10 seconds working up to 30 seconds then back down to 10 seconds (the exact progression with the exercises used for each set is written out below).
