Experimental Circuit Workout

I'm putting together some metabolic conditioning workouts for summer TT programs with goal of doing a lot of work but with minimal soreness. So here's an experimental circuit workout I put someone through today.

1)Bodyweight Circuit (half warmup, half intense)
2) Countdown Circuit - starting in set one with 15 reps, then set two at 14 reps, etc., all the way down to 1 rep.
A) 30% Intensity Deadlifts
B) Mountain Climbers
C) Jumping Jacks.
3) 3 running intervals of 1 minute.

Decent workout, but not perfect. The mountain climbers didn't fit in perfectly...I'll try something else next time...the deadlift intensity was right on, and the JJ's were just a nice touch.
