The Workout Of The Day for Saturday, 12.29.12. “Hell Boy”

Howdy folks,

The weekend is here.

Buckle up.

Today you get to do…

3×20, aka  – Hell Day.

Hellboy-2

– Warm up.

– Go as hard as you can for 20 minutes.

– Recover for 5 minutes. Or maybe a bit more.

– Go again for another 20 minutes.

– Recover for 5 minutes. Or maybe a bit more.

– Go again for another 20 minutes.

The idea here is to go as hard as you can for the duration of both intervals without being forced to go easier at the end of the second or third interval.

If you run out of gas before you finish the second or third interval, you went too hard.

If your vision isn’t blurry at the end of the third interval, you went too easy.

If you’re doing this with a powermeter, you want your wattage output to be as close to constant as possible. We’re talking 10 watt variance at the most.

Keep it steady.

These take practice to do well, and the better you get, the harder they get.

This workout is great on the trainer – if you can stand to be on a trainer that long – and that’s how I usually do ‘em… but I’m crazy that way. This workout is probably best when you do it on the trainer, unless you have a really peaceful stretch of road you can use, but it takes a certain kinda crazy to do it, no doubt.

So hey… have fun!
