Kind of jittery, I guess, like after a heavy low rep set of squats of DL. Letting the adrenaline die down.
Sounds like a good approach for general conditioning would be a couple sets w/ low rest to get the body primed, a few sets w/ more rest for speed, and a few sets w/ low rest for fatloss/cardio.
Jittery would be a good way of putting it. More in the 100-800 meter length. A properly run all out assault on the 800meter may have you puking as well. Not due to the muscles ability to compensate, but due to the nervous system overload that goes along with it.
This is known to happen to Rowers/ Scullers more than any other competitive athletes due to the complete body nervous system involvement.
The harder the effort basicaly then the longer the rest interval.
I have found the Tabata method to work well with the:
Prowler, Concept 2 Rowing Erg, Sprints.
Anything that activates the greatest amount of muscle.
Thanks for the questions and comments !
