So, I was looking at Carson this afternoon, mentally prepping for the evening’s workout. The workout description lists that the workout includes 36 minutes of sweet spot work, which doesn’t include the 2-minute interval in the warmup.
Now, I’ll admit that initially I was like “why am I not getting full credit here?”, but upon reflection I’m legitimately wondering about how sweet spot training works and whether it makes sense or not to include that warmup interval when thinking about how much work has been done. Does it not matter because it’s too short? If so, would a better use of the hour be to just jump right in and shorten the workout? I don’t really feel like a warmup is necessary for an 88% interval - could I just skip the first 10 minutes and expect equal benefit?
