Example text

I outline several in­line skate workouts in part II.  The methods include weight training and plyometric bounding exercises, specific strength exercises such as hill bounding and roller board training, and power endurance exercises such as uphill double poling on roller skis or in­line skates.  For more information, refer to a good text or talk with a professional strength trainer.  The object is to use long bounds during which both feet are off the ground at the same time.  Most serious skiers have a roller board in their basement or in their backyard.

The titles refer to how you feel and what activity you are able to do while exercising.  At this level of activity you could sing whole songs and not be short of breath.  If you find it difficult to keep up a conversation, you are in the next intensity level and going too hard for talking intensity.  This is about the intensity of a marathon for most master, non­elite runners.  This is generally the intensity for medium­distance races. " Time spent at this intensity is always very short, generally less than 20 seconds in an interval format, with long rest periods.

You can always substitute your own mode of exercise, but pay close attention to the duration and intensity.  A few more words about some of the workout features.  I won't forget to let you sweat now and then.  What scale you use is not important; the goal is to get some idea of how hard you're working as you do the workouts.  Being familiar with HR zones is especially helpful when you change activities and try new exercises for which you do not have a good perception, especially when you start using both arms and legs.
