This strength interval workout will challenge you to use your muscles and work as hard as possible in short bursts of effort. The exercises will all be performed using bodyweight.

You'll use a 2 to 1 work to rest ratio to pack a ton of work into a short time frame. Rather than swinging weight around, a staple in Freeman's programming, you'll find yourself hopping to hone your fitness and plyometric power. Don't dismiss the exercises before you try the workout – you'll absolutely end it sweaty, with a hammering heart rate.
