MBUK vs. the Pyramid of Pain!

Mega Training gets (even more) serious…

Alright folks, how are we? Thought I’d check in and give you a quick update on how things are going with ‘Team Mega’.

Jamer had a spot of self-diagnosed illness last week and has this week disappeared to a European mountain range to throw himself down hills on a glorified ironing board so it’s been left to me and Rob to cane in Joe from Flat Out Fit‘s personal training plans…

So what have I learned? Well, I’m pretty good at ‘the plank’, doing sit-ups around an excitable ten month-old puppy is a futile exercise and the Pyramid of Pain is one of the most unpleasant things that you can do on a bike…

If you’ve got a spare twelve minutes at lunch you should try it;

Sprint for ten seconds, recover for 50.

Sprint for 20 seconds, recover for 40.

Sprint for 30 seconds, recover for 30. The swearing starts under the breath.

Sprint for 40 seconds, recover for 20. Swearing still under the breath, some grimmacing.

Sprint for 50 seconds, recover for 10. Swearing turns blasthemic, looking to the sky for forgiveness starts.

Sprint for 60 seconds straight. Run out of room, put a big old corner in, get chased by a staffy, swearing now deemed offensive by Franky Boyle.

The fun doesn’t stop there though, oh no, you then REPEAT the above but in reverse order.

Go on… Try it… I dare you!
