HIIT Ladders!

After attending a continuing education day last year, I have been OBSESSED with incorporating HIIT into my spin classes. The feedback I’ve gotten has been resoundingly positive.  Most of my regulars love incorporating one of these HIIT cardio sessions a week to balance out their other work outs, and it makes the class go so fast.  
I tried a new configuration for incorporating intervals last Wednesday–a ladder of increasing time and decreasing watts, broken up with a strong climb in between each round.  
One hour of fun.  I promise–it goes quickly!  Enjoy!
