Steady State Level 2

Goal: increase aerobic work capacity as a continuation of SSL 1, while still not accumulating fatigue.

How: stay at the top of the blue zone, typically after a warm up using SSL 1. Maintain a heart rate at the top of the blue zone for 15-20 minutes to stimulate recovery, or 45-60+ minutes to develop your aerobic system.

Exercises: Unless you’re training for a specific endurance event, you’ll benefit from using a variety of cardiovascular exercises.
