In Foundations 2, we’ll be getting out on the road or the trails a lot more. Using Zone training to help manage intensity through these sessions. If you can’t run then sub rowing or biking.


5 min in Zone 1
10 min in Zone 2
5 min in Zone 1

Zone training is an excellent way to manage your training intensity and volume when doing monostructural exercise. Use the reference table below to help you with training in the appropriate zones.

Zone 1 – Very easy with little to no impact on respiratory rate
Zone 2 – Easy but able to maintain a conversation without interruption
Zone 3 – Moderate but sustainable for 1+ hours. 5-10 words without interruption
Zone 4 – Hard but not all out. 2-3 words before interruption.
Zone 5 – Near maximum effort for the given duration.
