Session 6 Lactate Tolerance

Lactate Tolerance is all about getting out and hanging on. these reps are in 3 blocks, first block with lots of rest. will probably feel great and be fast. 2nd set should drop off but we fight to not allow them to. last 3 reps is hang onto whatever you have left! do not worry about times, this is totally judged by effort and the "burn". its not nice, it wont be pretty, but it works!
