Jenna's 30-60-90 cardio intervals

This is an Aquatic pattern from (pattern 15395)

This is a cardio pattern, but it can easily be combined with toning.

Get everyone jogging in place. Announce an exercise and say go. Every 20 seconds, intensity of effort increases- start at 30%, then 60%, then 90%. I always tell them that everyone's effort will look different, but that I want to see a general increase in work output.

At the end of every interval set, raise your arm, the drop down to a jog and you announce/explain the next exercise, take a pulse count, whatever. If they are winded, I'll extend the recovery period.

To make it more challenging, at the end of an interval set, I will have them run to the wall and then run across the pool and back to where the started, where we start another interval.

Some ideas:

There are LOTS of others you can do! I hope this is clear, if not, feel free to email me. My class really looks forward to the combination toning/cardio.
