I'm a lazy trainer. Contrary to the traithlon tradition of Type-A guys that break their nuts in each training session and keep overachieving I have a more relaxed approach to training and so far I have no regrets. It doesn't mean that I don't like training, but I prefer to have some perspective, and perspective is something that most type-A guys can't afford. Overall the results will eventually come my way and in the meantime I'm enjoying the jurney.
Anyway, it all comes to introduce the subject of this post, the superset is a hard set. Is not the type of set that I would go for if I was self coaching. But as I am not self coached, I am not longer the boss and the options narrowed to one.
The idea behind it is to increase performance under extreme fatigue. And by extreme fatigue it is not only the Everests of the heart rate zones but also soreness of all kinds from toes to chin. And a lot of sweat. Add the odd shower and a temperature of about 1OºC and you have your Auckland version of hell. In a productive way. It is four of us doing it and eventually I know most of the squad getting ready for big races will have to endure it. The total duration of the set is between 12 and 25min depending on the distance of the runs.
