HIIT – High-Intensity Interval Training Accumulator

For each round, there are 5 exercises (see below). In an accumulator format, start with 1 exercise for 20 seconds, then rest for 20 seconds, adding another exercise until all 5 exercises are completed in succession. Then, work back down until only the last exercise is left. Each round takes 13 minutes. Take a 2-minute rest, then start the next round.

1 – Rest
1-2 Rest
1-2-3 Rest
1-2-3-4 Rest
1-2-3-4-5 Rest
5-4-3-2-1 Rest
5-4-3-2 Rest
5-4-3 Rest
5-4 Rest
5 Rest

Round I

  • Deadlift
  • 2-handed Russain swing
  • Alt single-hand swing
  • High pull
  • American swing

Round II

  • Swing
  • Squat
  • Squat & press
  • Clean
  • Snatch

Round III

  • Freddy Mercury w/ KB hold
  • Skull crusher
  • Russian twist w/KB
  • Greg Louganis
  • Flutter w/ KB hold

With no time to spare, we actually couldn’t fully complete Round III, but we made it bit further than when I recently tried this workout at Foxhole. Well done!

As I mentioned, this was my second go-round with this Weinke. I made a few adjustments to the exercises and cut out the little baby jog (no running at Meathead). Another big difference from SOBland to A51 was much more focus on the exercises and a lot less mumblechatter. (That may be more of an issue with a few of the present pax – Fireman Ed, Frehley’s Comet & Madam Toussaud.)

Our playlist was 90% urban hits of yesteryear, 5% contemporary pop and 5% classic rock. Odd, but it fit the bill.

It’s hard to take note of everyone while staring at a 20 sec countdown, but you couldn’t not notice Hoover with his rucksack and double bells and Bull Dog ripping through sets. Well done!

I shall be back to Meathead.

Nice lead, Wild Turkey. That was a tough one, with what seemed like minimal rest (it looks like more rest on paper). Bell size selection was key.
T-claps on your 10 minutes of jumping rope pre-Meathead. That added a little, I’m sure – glad we didn’t pre-run today.
Not sure how Foxhole manages much mumblechatter – they (the pax you called out above) must be taking too many breaks.
Thanks for leading today!
