how some of the ladies made out on the airdyne

I’m always concerned when I look at a workout and think to myself “that doesn’t look too bad”. This airdyne ladder interval workout certainly fits that description. Deceptively hard if you go hard as intended. I got this workout from Heather’s Gym.

What makes this workout so tough ?

The time domains are different and it starts with a long interval so pacing strategy is tough. The shorter the intervals the harder you should work.

Once you are through and pretty much fried, then you have to do it all over again. Note: you might want to do this one with a friend as you will want to walk away about halfway through. Thanks to Rob over at the Best of Collingwood for sticking it out with me on this one.

So here it is :

3 mins max effort for calories.

Full rest

2 mins max effort for calories.

Full rest

1 min max effort for calories.

Full rest

3 mins max effort for calories.

Full rest

2 mins max effort for calories.

Full rest

1 min max effort for calories.

Done.

Key to this workout is pacing and sustained effort. You don’t want your second round to be way less than your first round. As you can see in the picture I wrote down my RPMs as I feel they are the best gauge of work output on the Airdyne for pacing.
