The challenge

The Interval Short is built for versatility. Constructed with four-way stretch to ensure maximum range of motion and a cling-free, ultra-wicking shell for mobility, they were created to be the ultimate all-rounder—ready to handle everything from HIIT to CrossFit to Bootcamps, and everything in between. As a Head Coach at Tone House, Joe’s workouts are focused on improving sports performance. Whether it’s conditioning work with sprints, lateral movements, explosive jumps, gallops, sleds or strength training, he’s working nonstop. That’s why Joe understands the importance of having a go-to short that switches gears at a moment’s notice. To test just how much they can handle, we set Joe up with a pair of our Interval Shorts for an explosive workout.

WARM UP:

  • Sled Push (~120 - 160 lbs) - 4 rounds down and back

OR 1,200 meter row at 2:00 - 2:15 minute pace

 

CONDITIONING:

  • Two 20-yard sprints down and back
  • 2 Sprints / 2 Gallops (20 yards down and back) for 2 rounds each
  • Standing Pull with Sled
    • Step and press to return sled for 3 rounds
  • Squats
    • Pause reps 3x8 (5 second hold at the bottom)
    • Last Round - 10 normal squats Into 10 jump squats
  • Deadlifts Trap Bar
    • 3 sets of 5 regular / 5 jumps
  • Bulgarian Split Squats
    • 3 x 12 with weight into 12 same leg Bulgarian split jumps then switch legs
  • Hamstring curls with Val slide
    • 20 reps on left single leg, 20 reps right single leg, 20 reps both legs.

 

The Verdict

IT'S JUST TOO WELL MADE

It’s an incredibly versatile short. I train in all planes of motion and perform explosive movements, and these shorts never restrict me. They seem to stay clean and durable even after a heavy training session.
