    The Berserker warriors of old Norse literature were known for working themselves into a trance-like state before battle, fighting with an almost uncontrollable rage and fury making them legendary fighters.

    This Berserker HIIT Challenge is your foe and by starting this video you are walking on to your own personal battlefield. Now it is your turn to "fight" with the intensity of the Berserkers of old by pushing through this short but brutally challenging workout, the challenge, to complete the video without stopping. Keep your focus and don't let your mind get the better of you when it tells you that you have done enough. Finishing this workout in 16 minutes with 100% effort will burn a hefty 192 calories on the low end and up to, and possibly over, 250 calories on the high end.

    Though you may not be able to finish this workout all the way through the first time, don't give up, trying it again from time to time until you win the battle over this challenge.

    This workout is not for beginners or even the occasional exerciser. It requires a high level of strength, control, and cardiovascular endurance to complete and though it is far from impossible it is still very demanding.  Many of these exercises are high impact so if you have knee issues you may want to skip this workout or at least do some modifications to protect your joints a bit more.  

    For those who do feel up to the challenge keep in mind that you can easily move slower or modify exercises to make them easier without even realizing that you are doing it. Be sure to keep focused on pushing as hard as you can and keeping your form as clean as you can for each exercise and repetition. This routine is only as hard as you make it so be sure to challenge yourself, trying to do more repetitions or harder versions of exercises every time you come back and try this challenge again.

    Routine Format:  Repeat each group two times for a total of 4 minutes per group. There are no breaks except for the 30 seconds of active rest.
