I’m 56 and I teach Judo, Boxing, Maui Thai and Wrestling. This is one of the best workouts with a thorough explanation of structure and progression!

The burn workout is aerobic + lactic

Hi Eric.

Can this cardio A + L workout be done at the same time as a cardio A + A workout?

If so, which one should go first ?

I really liked this workout it’s not to easy and it doesn’t really take a lot of room to do. I can do this in my motel rooms when I’m on the road.

Systemic A+L because of the time spent on each sequence.

Great info as always. Can you give me some insight into why you did the progression like that?

Thank you,

It is a balance,strength and endurance workout so it covers all the aspects
aerobic, anaerobic. the progression is also lactic so overall it would be hard
to put it in one sum up bloody good workout

Anerobic Lactate with the timed sets in seconds and rest periods. It’s like your thruster 2.0, trx, and 180s.

Hey Eric,
This workout will work the Aerobic+ Lactic energy system.

looks like an Aerobic Hypertrophy workout since time under tension is 40 seconds,and the energy system is Aerobic Lactic, since A-Lactic does not last as long as Lactic System, looks great Eric

Aerobic Lactic (AL)

Anaerobic Lactic!

You called it a simple workout

Simple, not necessarily easy ;)

Aerobic & Lactic

7 months 10 days ago

Hi Eric,
As the anaerobic and aerobic energy systems are generally complementary, it is the balance which is important and in this case the workout would be more aerobic than anaerobic and much more so than lactic.

API aerobic power interval

Given the high reps Aerobic and Lactic. Also the progression by reduction in rest time and increase in sets/time suggests an endurance workout which is why I say Aerobic and Lactic

Not sure but I’m not the best when it comes to pop quizzes

I’d say Anaerobic Lactic…

Aerobic lactic is the energy system

YOS – you my friend, are the winner, since you were next in terms of time to correctly guess Aerobic + Lactic as the energy systems being worked, based on my CAGE Cardio system of conditioning.

However, I see that your email address is from Buffalo, and being from Hamilton, we had a bitter rivalry with city’s hockey players and I don’t know if I can stomach hooking you up. ;)

J/K, when the product launches, I’ll ensure that we get your info so we can send it your way.

Hey Eric,

Thanks for the workout.

Well, given your slow tempo and your set time length (~40″), I would say you were training the most the anaerobic lactic system.

Hi Eric,

Nice little workout. I would say it’s a Systemic Aerobic+Lactic workout

7 months 10 days ago

Aaaand, we have a winner…

No surprise, it’s one of my powerDOJO members!


Because Riccardo is an esteemed powerDOJO Kyoudai, all active Kyoudai will be receiving my upcoming product for free.

Therefore, I’ll have to pick someone else. ;)

BONUS – Riccardo was the only one to mention the fact that it’s a Systemic Lactic workout, which shows his advanced brain power!

Hi Eric
as a learning coach,i would say because of the rest period plus the speed in which the exercise is done, it is an aerobic workout
