HIGH INTENSITY TRAINING: ‘GET BACK IN SHAPE’ TRAINING PLAN ENTERS ITS THIRD WEEK

MARTIN SKUHRAVÝ - 01/13/2022

4 high intensity workouts are planned for the upcoming week. Learn why ‘interval training’ is important for your overall fitness and familiarize yourself with sessions we have planned for the third week of the January training plan.

Remember, high intensity does not mean training for PROs only! By sticking to an advised plan, all workouts work for any fitness level and follow the same goal. Whatever your level is, we want to help you make it one step better.

During the first/introductory week, you focused on gaining your fundamental strength and fitness that you can build upon. You already know why and how endurance training is important and now it’s time to take the next step!

How to start

Like with every week of the January training plan of ‘Get Back In Shape’, the workout days are Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. It’s good to stick to these days and rest in between. If you should miss one of your training days, then don’t worry, you can always use one of the free days to complete the workout!

All you need to do to start your workout is to open the app, tap the ‘Workout’ button in the bottom right corner and pick the right workout for the day, such as ‘18.1. | Rise and shine again’. If you haven’t updated the app after 1st of January 2022, be sure to do so!

Why is high intensity training so important?

Even 20 to 30 second intervals can not only prepare you for the races and fast rides, but can also help improve your endurance. And it’s not just that! You can see the benefits of high intensity interval training (HIIT), really quickly, after only a couple of weeks of training.

The duration of efforts could be from a couple of seconds up to a minute or more and they repeat multiple times. As you can see below, HIIT sessions usually do not exceed an hour and so are a great form of training, if your time is limited.

To make the HIIT effective, your body must be ready to adapt to this kind of intensity. To do so, it must be well rested. Overstressing your body can not only lead to making you excessively tired but can also not lead to changes that are needed to adapt your body for high intensity.

It is important that you remember that high intensity training gets you up quickly but may not move you forward in the long-term horizon, as we explained last week.


4 sessions are ahead

 

Rise and shine again


Tuesday the 18th of January workout is a day when you still get your legs spinning but mainly, it’s a day to recover as you only had one rest day after two intense endurance rides. Remember: Rest or die!

The Japanese island of Okinawa and it’s interesting and exotic forest will keep you entertained throughout this easy 45-min workout.

Back to work


Thursday the 20th of January is a day when you get back to work. It’s going to be intense, but try not to give up! Make sure you position the fan in the right direction, otherwise you’re going to swim in your sweat. This training is going to be hard but should not lead you to exhaustion.

To complete the Thursday workout, you are still going to stay in the Pacific Ocean, just a bit further south-west. The route follows the shores of the Sun Moon Lake right in the centre of mountainous Taiwan.

It’s getting intense


If you are not used to HIIT sessions, you are going to remember Saturday the 22nd of January as a day when you rode harder than you thought you could. The session is not only intense but also pretty long. Just one more day of hard work before the rest day is ahead so keep pushing! If it really is your first HIIT, then it might feel very uncomfortable and unusual. But you will get used to it in a certain way!

Enjoy, if you can, the fantastic views as you fight your way up the Anzère climb, well known for being part of the brutal, long distance Swiss race, The Tour des Stations.

The final touch


Can you reach the level of 200% FTP? Sunday, the 23rd of January, is when you try. It is going to hurt, but moving forward basically hurts sometimes. Remember, if there is no power in your legs anymore and your power output is significantly lower, you can skip the last repetition. On the other hand if you still feel good, add one more!

Remember to really push as hard as you can. It makes no sense to go slower and do more repetitions. The desired changes in your muscles won’t happen if you really don’t go full gas.

As you keep pushing to your maximum, one may wonder if the epic countryside route scenery in South Africa is a dream or reality.

The following week, 24th to 30th of January, is dedicated to tempo training. Workouts are going to be less intense and shorter, making it a great way to finish your full-month efforts. Keep up the good work!

    My name is Liza from Amsterdam, Who would have thought there would be a day that I will be testifying about a hacker online? I recall when I invested hundreds of thousands in a fake crypto-mining Telegram group. When I saw my profits, It was crazy not until I wanted to make my first withdrawal, I was told to pay fees upon charges and still couldn't withdraw. Anyways after several trials and pleas, I had to settle for getting someone to help me out. That's when I contacted ( Cybergenie (@) Cyberservices. Com ) and W-A (+1) 252,512,0391 )and within days, I was informed that they are scammers but I was lucky they were able to help me recover USDT I had sent to the wallet previously...

    Hi everyone reading this amazing testimony of mine and i want to give my own verdict on how you can win the lottery by contacting Dr Kumar for your lottery numbers. I started playing lottery games for years now and I have never won big. I went online to seek help to see if i could get some tips on how I can win bigger amounts on the lottery and I saw some nice reviews about Dr Kumar who has made different people huge winners in the lottery by sending them lottery numbers. I gave it a try and I contacted Dr Kumar by email and he told me how and what to do before I can become a big lotto winner and I accepted. He made special prayers for me at his temple and sent me the required lottery numbers to play and when I played it, I won a massive $235.4 million POWERBALL jackpot. I was so happy and I chose to receive my winnings in a one-time, lump-sum payment of $160,038,447.27 at Florida Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee and the balance was given to the store that I bought & played the game from. I would love other people who want to win the lottery to seek help from Dr Kumar and he will also send you the lottery numbers and make you a winner just like me. You can reach Dr Kumar on email: spellcasttemple@gmail.com or WhatsApp +2347051705853
