This weeks workout is a time trial workout.
See the video below for a quick example.
Most people find cardio training very boring. I would too if I ran on the treadmill every week with no idea how to change up my training.
Here is one of the many ways you can spice up your cardio workout to make it interesting and challenging.
It's called the time trial workout.
1. Pick 3 cardio machines at the gym. It can be the rower, the bike and the treadmill or any 3 you want.
2. Perform a certain distance on each. For example. 1km Row - 4km Run - 5km Bike. Pick a set of distances that you can complete in under 30-45 minutes if you are rushed for time.
3. Note the time it takes from when you start the actual first piece of equipment to the end of the last piece of equipment. This includes rest periods etc.
4. Record the time and try to beat it next time.
Now you have a cardio workout with goals attached. You can hit the gym with a real plan and a purpose and continually improve your fitness.
We are all innately competitive and we do not like going backwards.
I would do this workout for 4-6 workouts as you will inevitably not be able to beat your time after a certain number of workouts.
Enjoy and let me know what you choose and how you get on.
