Yes, another taste of high intensity today. “Why twice?” you may ask.


Last week you saw a single 25 minute effort. Today you’ll see 3 shorter efforts, each approximately 5 minutes in duration.


This means that the intensity of these efforts will be much higher than the 25 minute effort. The shorter the effort, the harder you work.


Intensity (how hard you work / how fast you go / how heavy you lift) is one of two primary variables that we manipulate to build fitness.


The effort last week required a sense of pace, and was lower intensity as over time the fatigue accumulated. In today’s session, you’ll be going hard right off the bat.


Get some,
