I recently downloaded a great new iPhone app called the Bit Timer.
It’s an interval training timer that you can set to create your own personal interval training workouts.
You choose how long to make the work per set and how long you want to rest per set and then how many times you to repeat it.
For example the setting I used in this picture is for 40/20/20 = 40 seconds of work with 20 seconds of rest, 20 times. Using this setting I can create a quick 20 minute interval workout.
Example of a 10 minute interval workout:
40 sec. mountain climbers / rest for 20 sec.
40 sec. plank/rest for 20 sec.
40 sec. burpees/ rest for 20 sec.
40 sec. right side plank / rest 20 sec.
40 sec. kettle-bell swings / rest 20 sec.
40 sec. left side plank / rest 20 sec.
40 sec. jump squats / rest 20 sec.
40 sec. crunches / rest 20 sec.
40 sec. dumb bell press / rest 20 sec.
40 sec. bicycles (abs) / rest 20 sec
You can make your workout as long or as short as you need depending on your schedule.
I used this app a couple of days ago to plan a 30 minute workout. I combined some cardio, abs and strength training. I loved it! It eliminates all the counting because you just do the work based on the timer rather than reps.
The app cost .99 to down load. It was the best .99 I have spent!
