Additional Comments:
If you follow my posts, you’ve seen this type of “1-3-2-2-3-1” work before. The key to this type of set is to work the right side progressively harder, while maintaining great form and pace on the left side. The left side intervals come down throughout the set, forcing the athlete to “work” the moderate part of the set (instead of going strong on the right, then EZ on the left). We want to maintain stroke, and although the HR will come down a bit on the left side, it shouldn’t come down too much!

This type of set works best with moderate to hard intervals. If the intervals are too easy, then the left side will be to relaxed, and the set will turn into an “active rest” set — not an aerobic conditioning set.
