Steady State 2 - For advanced participants, too long of a rest should not be needed. Jump back to your level 2 exertion setting when you are rested up and get ready for the next challenge. Level 2 exertion & zone 2 heart rate.
Challenge 3 - The 3rd challenge is optional in the Volume 4 workout and is designed for more advanced participants.
