The My Way Workout
Fed up with complicated intervals, unreachable wattage targets and boring hill repeats? Try the My Way Workout.
Frank Sinatra performed into his eighties while enjoying the late night company of mixed drinks, unfiltered camel cigarettes and the most beautiful women in the world. How did he do it? He did it My Way.
Sid Vicious maintained a Grand Tour physique on a diet of fish & chips, lager and heroin. How did he do it? He did it My Way.
The My Way Workout is simple. Load a two song playlist on your music device and set it on repeat. The two songs are the Sex Pistols’s punk rock cover of “My Way” (2:57), followed by Sinatra’s iconic anthem (4:37). Go as hard as you can during the Sex Pistols and recover on Sinatra. Here’s a link to the two-song playlist on Spotify.
Here’s an example of the My Way Workout, on Strava.
I like to do this workout on a five-minute hill, starting at the bottom with Sex Pistols then timing my recovery and descents so that I’m always climbing during the efforts. Of course the My Way Workout works equally well for runners, rowers, swimmers, nordic skiers and other endurance athletes.
