I’m wondering how much mental toughness requiered for a workout depends on your ability to sustain different type of efforts ?
If your personal capacity doesn’t have much of an impact, can a HIIT workout not being hard enough on the psychological side mean that you’re doing it wrong ?
For exemple, I don’t have any problem on this level when I do 3x20m although I don’t have legs left and am very tired.
Same for sprint workouts.
For the 5x 1m all out / 1m rest, at the end I can’t do one more rep, and it’s just a little bit hard on the mental side.
But, when I do the 3x 4m all out / 2m rest on a 6% average climb, the 2nd rep is very hard, and the last one is alway the hardest challenge of my life to finish it.
Does it mean that I’m doing the other workouts wrong ?
Or can it be that it’s this specific type of effort that i struggle the most with ?
I hope I was clear enough.
