STIMULUS and GOALS
Stimulus is consistent pacing across sets. Athletes can work with a partner and go 1:1 or individually. Intensity should stay moderate (75%), where the focus should be to set the tone early, stay consistent and sell out on the final round.
For athletes who have been doing this for a while and understand pacing should aim for 55-65 seconds. A great goal would be to keep it on the 2 minutes (1:00 work/1:00 rest).
