Ordinarily I don’t mind over unders, but today Reinstein kicked my arse, which resurrected a question I thought about some time ago, and posted on a TR Podcast one time but the guys never got around to answering.
Now my question is, when you know there is no chance of you completing the workout at 100% for the duration, do you,
- 1 - reduce the overall intensity for the remainder of the workout?
- 2 - try to do the overs as prescribed for the full period, but lower the intensity on the unders to less than prescribed to aid recovery?
- 3 - try to do the overs as prescribed but for less time, and have a longer under to aid recovery?
- 4 - stick with it and blow up?
Whilst I appreciate we are all built differently, and it is probably very specific to individuals, but what do other people do?
