HIGH INTENSITY INTERVALS: EHP POWER TEST
Fan Bike Intervals Preferably use an Assault or Rogue Echo Bike, but any exercise bike will do 5 sets 3:00 work 1:00 rest The goal here to test your sustainable power. Your score is your average power (in Watts) held for the entire 15:00 of work **Pre Notes** During this first, 12 week cycle we will focus on building our critical (sustainable) power output. For this cycle, we will focus particularly on building capacity with a fan bike, mainly because most everyone has access to one. This bike can be an assault, echo, Airdyne, or even a stationary bike such as a Peloton or Concept 2. This is a great indicator of your anaerobic power output, a term commonly used alongside the term "fitness". We will periodically retest this, so be honest in this day one endeavor.

Metcon: Tempo Run / Gymnastics
Performance Version Part A. 5 rounds for quality 100m run 10 toes to bar Rest 2:00 before Part B. Part B. 5 rounds for quality 100m run 10 Chest to Bar Pull-ups Fitness Version Part A. 5 rounds for quality 100m run 10 hanging knees to elbow Rest 2:00 before Part B. Part B. 5 rounds for quality 100m run 10 pull-ups Workout Notes / Modifications This conditioning piece is meant to be completed at a smooth tempo. Your first round should look exactly like your tenth round. If you are familiar with heart rate zones, we want your average heart rate to be in your upper zone 2/lower zone 3. The toes to bar/pull-ups are meant to add some high quality, extensive reps under fatigue. Both should be in smooth, unbroken sets. Use a band for assistance to keep the pull-ups on tempo if necessary. Your run pace should be such that if we said, "you have to do 1,000 burpees if you break a set of toes to bar/pull-ups." This is about finding the perfect, active recovery pace of running in order to preserve fast, high quality sets of gymnastics. Target Time Each Set None - find YOUR pace to keep the gymnastics unbroken Scaled Version 80m run 6-8 toes to bar / band assisted strict pull-up Modifications / Scales Run (equipment) - 8-10 cal bike Run (space) - 5 x 50' shuttle run (25' - back) Toes to bar: Hanging Knee Raise, Knees to Elbow, Alternating V-ups (all 1:1 reps scale) Pull-ups: Band Bent Over Row, Inverted Row, Pull-down, Push-ups (1.5x reps)

Optional Extra: Zone 2 Cardio
30-40 minutes of zone 2, steady state cardio. Pick a cardio machine of choice, put on a youtube video, a podcast, or breathe-easy music, and keep your heart rate around 60% maximum for the time allotted. If you need to take a few shorts breaks that is fine. Just stay within the target heart rate zone for 30-40 minutes. Zone 2, or commonly called "Steady State Cardio", helps build an aerobic foundation and help burn fat for fuel.This is the opposite end of the spectrum of the high intensity output we trained in the bike intervals. Ideally, this cardio would be done in a separate session. We prefer to do our zone 2 work either first thing in the morning or in the evening.

Workout Notes Target Time Each Interval: Sub 2.5 minutes Scale if intervals take longer than 3 minutes Goal here is to find your pace and not stop through each set. These are shorter intervals that will allow you to push around 80-85% maximal effort throughout each set Be conservative on the first set, and try to increase pace each subsequent set. Scaling options Weight: 75# lunge / 200m row Equipment: Lunge: Any type of weighted lunge - if using dumbbells, hold 20% bodyweight in each hand and hold dumbbells on your shoulders in a front rack Row: 200m run

Endurance Session: Ski or Row
Ski or Row Intervals: You pick the machine 10 sets 250m moderate pace 250m easy pace No additional rest between sets An easy pace is one you could hold for hours. A moderate pace is about 7-10 seconds per 500m (if using row or ski erg) faster than easy pace.

Metcon: EMOM DBS/Bike/Burpee
Performance & Fitness Versions EMOM 24 Start a new exercise on each minute for 24 straight minutes 8 sets of each exercise 10 DB Snatch 60# (cap :35) 12 Cal Bike (cap :45) 10 Burpee to 6" Touch Overhead (cap :30) Workout Notes EMOMs are our preferred method for mental training, building capacity, skills under fatigue, and utilizing huge amounts of calories in zone 3-4 training. We will gradually progress EMOMs to longer time domains, longer working sets, and more exercises. DB Snatch should be smooth with powerful hip extension as you rise. You can change hands anyway you want. Some prefer to change as the dumbbell descends while others might find changing hands while the dumbbell rests on the ground easier. Your goal should be to use the entire time allotted for the bike. Use that time on the bike to rest while you pedal as opposed to lighting up 12 calories in 12 seconds then dying for 48 seconds afterwards. It helps to step forward with one leg first instead of hopping both feet up off the ground in the burpees. This slows the movement down, is easier on your low back, and helps drive a little momentum into that small Trust your movement. Build your mind. Grow your fitness. Have fun.
