Good morning Striders! I hope you have all recovered from Gary's 200's session on Monday night, great work from you all!
Tonight's session is VO2 Max ladder on the hockey pitches. This is a great session for building your endurance and efficiency when training by increasing the oxygen uptake in the muscles. The session will comprise of a warm up on the pitches followed by the session which is:
30 seconds on/ 30 seconds off X3,
45 seconds on/ 45 seconds off x 2 and,
1 minute on/ 2 minute recovery and this will be repeated twice.

This is a shorter session lasting 24 minutes in total but to get the most benefit out of it you should give maximum effort!

I look forward to seeing you all later!
