Good Morning America: 10-20-30 Workout
Have you heard of the new Interval Workout where every second counts? Good Morning America’s Abbie Boudreau looked into The 10-20-30 Workout and shared what she found. A study out of Denmark concluded that you can get results at the gym in just minutes, depending on how they are targeted.

So how does the 10-20-30 break down? Trainer Harley Pasternak explained:
- 30 seconds of Low Intensity Exercise
- 20 seconds of Moderate Intensity Exercise
- 10 seconds of High Intensity Exercise
This one-minute cycle repeats for five minutes, followed by a two-minute break. Then you repeat the cycle, and you’ve done the whole workout in only 12 minutes. That could fit into almost any schedule.
GMA: Modified High Intensity Workout
Pasternak has a fitness book called 5 Pounds: The Breakthrough 5-Day Plan To Jumpstart Rapid Weight Loss. He thinks the 10-20-30 Workout could make sense for a lot of people, but no plan is right for everyone. He said anytime high intensity is involved, there will be a risk for some people. It’s never a bad idea to consult your doctor before starting a fitness plan, based on your own health needs.
You could do a modified version of the 10-20-30 Workout, without quite the same intensity. For example, jog instead of walking. Gradually increase the speed if you feel up to it. The important thing about any fitness plan is just to get moving.
