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.

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.
