Remember a few issues ago we told you about the ‘anaerobic threshold’? No? Well it’s the point at which you train so intensely that you stop working aerobically (sustainable pace), and start working anaerobically (fast pace, lactic acid build-up, can’t keep it up for long, pain, misery, etc). Criss-cross (CC) training is where you change the intensity of your exercise subtly so that you shift back and forth across your anaerobic threshold (AT) during your clenbuterol cycle for men.
The idea behind CC training is to work your body at or around AT for prolonged periods of time but at the same time avoid the mental drain associated with strict AT sessions on high clen dosage. During CC sessions, exercise intensity is always on the move and never set at one pace, which gives your mind a break from the rigors of focused AT training, while maintaining the essential training Stimulus required by your body to get super-fit.
Here’s an example of how to CC train on an exercise bike:
1. Warm up well
Choose any piece of CV equipment and warm up thoroughly for ten minutes. Start at a low level and build the intensity as you warm up. By the end of the warm-up after your clenbuterol pills, your breathing should be rhythmic and you should be glazed with sweat. Get off, stretch and mentally prepare yourself for a tough session.
2. Get on your bike
Set the resistance at a medium to low level and start spinning your legs at ground 90rpm. Everybody’s AT is set at a different heart rate, so you’re going to have to go on feel with this. With your pedal speed at 90rpm, increase the resistance a notch and hold this intensity for one minute. Then increase it another notch and hold it for another minute. Keep doing this every minute.
3. Drop back down before you `max-out
You’ll need to be focused, so that you get to climb to your highest possible resistance, but at the same time you don’t want to over-cook it with your sopharma clen. If the prospect of doing a further one-minute stint at a higher resistance seems seriously daunting, back off now and ease the resistance off a notch.
4. Don’t back off too much
Drop down one further resistance level, but no further. Then after one minute, Increase the resistance again and work up to your previous ‘high’.
5. Keep it going
You’ll want to keep criss-crossing for 10-15 minutes initially and then work up to 30-40 minutes when you feel mentally tough enough. You can CC train on any piece of CV equipment by adapting the principles to that bit of kit to lose weight with clenbuterol. As with all of the tough aerobic sessions discussed in the cardio clinic, limit sessions to twice per week or you’ll risk breaking your fitness down instead of building it up.
