Ric and I did 2x15 and suffered for it! Almost stopped with 9 to go in the second, but started back up and finished quite strong after that. Thinking of doing 6x5 next.
Chris and I both did 2x15 with 5 mins rest and it was hard work. I felt worse in the second interval about 5 minutes into the set, but perked up afterwards. Might try this one again next week. Or I might find out how your 6x5's goes... I think that one will be hard too - There is no escape from the pain aaaahhhhh!!
Reckon i did the worst interval tactic ever.Row 16 rest 2.5, row 10 rest 2.5 then row 4. The 10 stage was probably the worst i ever felt whilst rowing. Will give the 2x15 a try soon. What ever way you break it down i find it very difficult starting up again after short breaks.Never done any interval training so am searching for some tips.
Hi Eddie I always feel like that after starting the next interval session. I have found doing rolling starts helps (when allowed).I start pulling slowly about 30 seconds / a minute before the start of the next interval to ease myself into the next session. I find this stops that awful shock to the system when you have to row balls out for the next interval.
I tried 15 row, 3 rest, 10 row, 2 rest, 5 row.Struggled to get going on the second interval after a 3 minute rest and I reckon it might be better to try for shorter but more frequest recoveries - can't be any harder can it?! I think I'll try Mark's suggestion of 6x5 with 1 min rest for the next attempt.
There's always the 30' followed by 5' rest... Even posted as a suggestion on the challenge bumpf... Just a thought if you struggle with the stop/start piece.
