Today at Boot camp we had some great results when I gave my Garmin cycling computer to Chris this morning. Although I didn’t record the total session, I managed to document 45 minutes in total, 5 minutes of the warm up and 40 minutes of the actual workout.
Given that we predominately trained in an area roughly 30m x 30m, Chris managed to clock up a maximum speed of 18.2km/h, average speed of 11.3km/h and the total distance covered 6.4kms and an energy burn of over 600 calories over the 45 minutes of recording.
Not a bad effort considering that the from point to point, Chris only had 10-13 meters to get to terminal speed before stopping and accelerating to terminal speed again before stopping. So for an average of 11.3km/h, a good part of this would have been at over 15km/h.
Ultimately this style of training is interval based with short burst of high intensity which is great for fat burning and improving your fitness level.
