This program is a supplemental endurance program (2x a week - work together with other training programs) by Chris Hinshaw – CrossFit Games Champions' coach and 10x Ironman endurance competitor for anyone who want to improve performance (between 400m to 5K) and resistant to fatigue at the same time. 

What makes the program works is training with the correct stimulus, without the personalized target pacing you are not able to improve the threshold efficiently. They are generated based on your past performance history (It's tied to your PRs and progress). 


Train with your personalized pacing is the key part of your routine. The followings are the example of workouts that are in the programming. They are layout in a particular training progression to optimize the results.

  • Aerobic Threshold: Steady workouts at a moderate intensity to develop fuel efficiency (burn fat), musculoskeletal system, and aerobic endurance.
  • Lactate Threshold: Higher volume workouts with longer distance intervals at higher “threshold” intensities with less rest between reps and sets.
  • VO2 Max: Lower volume workouts, shorter distance intervals at higher intensities, and more rest between reps and sets.
  • Speed Endurance: Very low volume workouts with interval distances less than 60sec. Extremely high intensities. Used to recruit fast twitch fibers and force them to develop endurance. Full recovery between reps and sets.
  • Strength Endurance: Low volume workouts with high-intensity intervals that include various explosive movements to recruit and develop your fast twitch muscle fibers.
