Designed for the fitness to competitive athlete, this is a personalized weekly endurance program by Chris Hinshaw – CrossFit Games champion's coach and 10x Ironman endurance competitor – for the Crossfit athlete wanting to optimize their aerobic capacity.

Coach Chris has designed a supplemental training program that starts with moderate aerobic workouts and progresses into race-pace simulated intervals. All the interval workouts have individually prescribed pace ranges that are based on an advanced algorithm using your current performance data.

  • 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.
