I just so happen to think intervals are the best way to bust out of a cardio rut. They can be especially helpful to long-time runners who may be getting bored with the same pace. Try this 10-minute interval Shape workout and you won’t only eliminate your boredom, but you’ll sizzle some major calories!
|Time||What to Do||RPE|
Try this workout once through if on a time crunch, or double times 3-8. Oh and FYI…
|RPE 1–2: Very easy; you can converse with no effort|
|RPE 3: Easy; you can converse with almost no effort|
|RPE 4: Moderately easy; you can converse comfortably with little effort|
|RPE 5: Moderate; conversation requires some effort|
|RPE 6: Moderately hard; conversation requires quite a bit of effort|
|RPE 7: Difficult; conversation requires a lot of effort|
|RPE 8: Very difficult; conversation requires maximum effort|
|RPE 9–10: Peak effort; no-talking zone|
This took me forever to figure out!
