  • 10 calorie Assault Air Bike

Workout 3

For time

  • 1 mile run
  • 100 calorie air bike
  • 100 calorie ski
  • 100 calorie row
  • 1 mile run

This is a long, slow, distance aerobic workout. Each set should be scaled so it does not exceed 12 minutes, putting the time cap on this workout at 60 minutes. For a class setting, participants could start on different ergs and work for up to 8 minutes.

This workout requires little warm up, beyond preparing the legs for running, which is the highest impact movement of the 4.

The strategy would be to settle in and be prepared for a long workout. The runs could also be shortened and the workout be done at a slow, steady pace if the athlete wishes to use this as a recovery day.

Intermediate athletes can do the workout as it is written.

Beginners should have a smaller time cap like 30 minutes and cut the required work in half.

Workout 4 – Mikko’s Triangle

EMOM for 39 minutes

  • 1 minute Row
  • 1 minute Ski Erg
  • 1 minute Assault Bike
  • 1 minute Rest

Set a single number of calories and complete that amount of work each minute – every minute.

Set a target number of calories and complete that number of calories each minute through the entire workout (39 minutes not counting the last 1-minute rest). A common target for Rx-level athletes is 20 calories per minute for each station.

Score is the total number of calories completed (for example, if athlete does 20 calories per minute, they will complete 600 total calories for the entire workout).

Scaling

Reduce the number of calories per minute to a number which will be challenging to hold each minute for the entire workout.

Workout 5 – Death by Cardio

Emom

  • 1-10 cal row
  • 2-10 cal ski
  • 3-10 cal bike (flywheel bike)
  • 4-1 min rest

Add one calorie after every round. When you have reached and done 20 cals then the workout is over. Every calorie that you did not do, will convert in to burpees. So if you skipped the last round, you will need to do 60 burpees. If you have consitently missed 2 burpees in the last 3 rounds it will convert in 18 burpees.

The strategy is to slowly increase the speed after each round. Try to really take your time in the first few rounds.
