Hi,
I guess this is and old question here, but after a search, nothing came.
Anyone have conclusive results about using
short, fixed time training tables vs long, variable time training tables?

By instance:

CO2 apnea walking table

(short, fixed time table version):
30 seconds hold (walking), 30 second breath (without stopping the walk). Repeat the cycle for 20 times

(long, variable time table version):
2 minutes breath-up (w/o walking), 45 seconds walk. 1 min 50 '' minute b-u, 45 seconds walks, 1' 30''/45'', 1' 15''/45'', and so on...

Same differences aplicable to static training

Any thoughts about which to choose?

Thanks!

Do both?

I don't know much, but I'd guess each has its own benefits.

Regarding apnea walking:

I say go for a shorter breathup. You will more likely have more co2 at the begning therefore your excersize will be more effective. (Bevan's reasoning).

What more, maybe you should drop the math, and try working closer to your max (or even at max co2) all the time. From other people's reports, it seems to do the job quite well.

I'm not sure there's any reason to keep walking while breathing, intuitivly I say no. Though I'll have to think about it some other day to excuse it.

"I say go for a shorter breathup. You will more likely have more co2 at the begning therefore your excersize will be more effective. (Bevan's reasoning)."

That's what I've been thinking about. No purges in the breathup, also.

"What more, maybe you should drop the math, and try working closer to your max (or even at max co2) all the time. From other people's reports, it seems to do the job quite well."

Max hold time? I'm doing this on my return home hehe. Bit dangerous while crossing the street :D . All I do is CO2 training while walking. Because of this my series are something like 'hold for 45 seconds, breathup for 1 minute 15 seconds, repeat until home'

"I'm not sure there's any reason to keep walking while breathing, intuitivly I say no. Though I'll have to think about it some other day to excuse it."

I think not, too.Less lactic acid clearance, no time for relax and the conditions are not similar as those used in the sea (breath up relaxed, etc) . But I'm really short of time, so one day I thought this: "Hey, what about walking back home (50 minutes) and do some CO2 training while I'm at it". If I
stop walking to breath-up... my way back will be near 1h 30 min!! :naughty
And I found some training based on intervals. But don't know if anyone has tried this.

Any suggestions for doing while walking home? :D

I meant "max co2" time.
means that you walk holding your breath till you can't hold it any longer, then breath some, then repeat.

If you're walking to get from point A to B, then maybe stoping on the way is not the best...:)
