The Sunday Supplement W/E 3/3/19

Heading into the month of March, and I don’t know about you, but I’m loving that it’s getting lighter earlier each morning! Add to that the amazing weather at the start of the week (it hit 18C on my car thermometer on Monday!) and I’m feeling pretty good.

It’s been a fun week on IG:

Conditioning workout of the week

This weeks conditioning is inspired by an online clients quest to hit a 5K bike ride in 10 minutes or less.

Your workout is to cycle 2km at around 90% max effort, then using either a heart rate monitor or the HR grips on the bike, rest till you get down to 60% of your max HR (Max HR = 220-age for men, 225-age for women) then repeat for 3-5 rounds.

The rest times become individualised as your recovery between rounds is down to individual fitness, stress levels on the day and a few other factors. As a guide, 2km should come in around the 2 minute mark.

 

Have an awesome Sunday!
