CONDITIONING WORKOUT..?? (LUNGS!!)
This is a statement from a someone (A TRAINER) i heard whilst having a quick coffee…
“The most important part of a conditioning workout is to thrash them
and make their eyes bleed and so snot drips from their nose..!!””
Mate of trainer says – REALLY..??
“YEH, When you do that it releases a chemical
into the brain – blah blah blah…..!!
They then come back for more of the same…”
Mate of trainer – Don’t they get injured..??
“Sometimes, but ill just sit them on the bike for an hour
Its easy money…”
***Are you on CRACK…!!**
Why is it that so many trainers want to crucify there clients..??
Why can’t we take them on a journey of fitness with an end goal
and place some smaller goals on the way to keep them progressing..??
Progressive overload is the key.. if he/she overloads YOU at every conditioning session
YOUR trainer is a CLOWN!! #truestory
******So, how and what conditioning sessions can
take you to the next level…??**************
Try these for size: (Making YOUR lungs work!)
Cardiac power interval (HURT LOCKER!)
Use rower/watt bike for this
1. Work – 60 – 90 secs max Heart rate x 5 Reps x (3 mins break) 2 sets
2. Rest – Start next rep when HR drops to below 130
3. If you take longer than 2 mins to recover your HR, stop the session!!
1. Conduct Watt bike/rower/run for 10 secs at max
2. Record distance and work of 70% of the distance for YOUR intervals.
3. 10-12 secs per rep
4. 60 secs rest
5. 5-15 reps per set
6. If you cant maintain 65-70% of the max distance. stop the session.
These sessions are not easy, however they are designed so the fitter you get
the more proficient YOUR workout is..
