Description

These sessions are comprised of high intensity intervals and low intensity intervals. High intensity sessions will be completed on your high intensity and volume days and your low intensity intervals will be completed on your low intensity and low volume days.

 

Low intensity sessions allow your body to recover and adapt from high intensity sessions. By alternating high and low days and a variety of intensities, it is much better than hard most of or all of the time. By allowing for low days, we can keep intensity, speed and power high on high days and low days allow for super-compensation. This should increase the quality of the work.

If fatigue starts to accumulate, instead of training in a high intensity zone, athletes can end up in the middle, no-mans land, not enough for adaptations in performance, nor low enough to stimulate recovery/regeneration. Athletes find that the only way to complete high intensity sessions is to TURN THE POWER DOWN. This means athletes end up in Bear Grylls survival mode, doing the bare minimum to get through it with no technical quality.  In order to complete high intensity work, we must go low!

Goal: High low conditioning/programming will allow you to complete more high intensity actions, at the right time, at the right frequency, for longer!
