This is the earliest version of “Death by Assault” we have found, first posted by Assault Fitness (@assaultairbike) on Instagram on May 6, 2015 (the 3 calories in minute 1, adding 3 each minute format shown above). They posted a modified version of the workout on November 16, 2016 as “begin with 5 calories, add 1 calorie every minute.” This newer version was one of the challenge workouts by Assault Fitness for their Assault WOD series in 2016.
