Yelling Performance 3 Step Interval Training
AudioFuel has teamed up with Martin Yelling (PhD) endurance sport and performance coach, writer, presenter, founder of Marathon Talk and former elite athlete, British Champion and Hawaii Ironman finisher to bring you our first Pro-Series session.
We have made this session with 3 different maximum intensity sprints. It's the same music throughout, just the MAX sprints are at 175 BPM, 180 BPM and 185 BPM.
All three, bundled at £14.00, will allow you to progress up through the series.
This 43 minute stepped intervals session goes like this: After a 155 BPM warm up, you get 3 mins at 160 BPM, then a recovery, 3 mins at 170 BPM, then a recovery, and a 3 min sprint at 180 BPM, then a recovery. This pattern repeats twice.
“Running at different paces is a highly effective way to build your aerobic capacity and your running economy to make you a stronger, fitter, faster runner.
The AudioFuel beat helps you run to the rhythm and in doing so experience some distinct changes in pace.
This session combines motivational music and personal coaching to help you perform better."
I like the focus that Martin gives to the coaching, this has slightly more detail to it e.g. "hips high", "focus on smooth efficient running". "finish off this effort in style" - this makes me smile.
I enjoyed this a lot to run too. It's the most I've smiled when running in ages.
I really pushed hard and felt energised. I was really pleased I was able to complete it and I think it'd keep me going for a while.
The 180 track is much better when running than I thought it would be. Thank you
I took the Yelling Performance 180 MAX Session out for a test run early this afternoon and I must say that I was really impressed.
After each increase in speed, the drop back down to 150 bpm was perfect; also, the track used for the 150 "rest" period is superb, love it.
The introduction was short but gave all the required information to just get going. Verbal coaching minimal but enough, letting the beat/music do the rest.
I think the 1 minute reminders by Martin Yelling was good, and enough. I tried to pick out something that i did not like to balance out my review, but found that, had i bought this, i would have been very happy.
To have Martin Yelling associated with this is not what makes it special; it is good in it's own right, but he does give it an edge, both in product and marketing terms.
ps. the 180 bpm part was SO hard!
