I go 90 seconds 6.6 and 30 seconds 10.5... its tough because my sprint is a lot faster than the latter but I get fukkin exhausted recuperating after the burst on 6.6.. gonna experiment with 3.8 and 12.0.

tips on progressing?

3:1 is pretty intense bro and even your rest period is fairly fast. I just go 1:2 (1 minute steady jogs with 30 second sprints; probably a piece of cake for you and I find it a lot easier to maintain. I do hope to get to 2:1 eventually but I like the way I'm progressing with 1:2 right now. If you're getting winded after your sprints, you should try to increase your rest periods between the sprints.

Look up some beginner workouts on You can click on most of the exercises and they'll have a video showing how to do the exercise/lifts with proper technique step by step. There's a wealth of info on that website to get you started.
