Every Tuesday we’ll feature a different coach’s workout you can complete in 60 minutes (or less!).
This week’s workout comes from coach Tom Manzi, a USAT Level II certified coach who has served as the regional manager for Joe Friel’s Training Bible Coaching. During this workout, as the hour goes on, the interval time decreases as the effort level increases. Manzi says he uses workouts like these to help his athletes build muscular endurance and finish strong in a race.
