More Real Life Intervals

Posted in Fat Loss, MBSC News, Random Thoughts, Training with tags on August 16, 2010 by mboyle1959

I like to keep posting these AirDyne interval workouts. Today I did my interval work with two of my former players, Mike Grier, from the Buffalo Sabres and Dan Spang one of our former BU defensemen. We did:

3x 1 mi   2:28/ 2:28/ 2:27 with 1:30 rest

1x.5 1:12

This was done on the new small fan AirDynes. I didn’t have a heartrate monitor available but I am pretty good at “doing it by feel”. I would clearly not recommend this method but all the intervals were under a 1-1 rest to work ratio. I did one mile every 4 minutes so the workout took about 13:30.

My hockey group ran 3x 300 shuttle and 1 x150 shuttle at 25 yds. Even if this is not the best way to lose fat there is no doubt in my mind it is the best way to get in shape for sports.  These were done basically in one minute on, 2 minutes off so their conditioning workout took about 10 minutes.
