Cardio Conversion Table

Updated: Mar 26


At Queen City Barbell, we tackle a variety of modalities when it comes to our Stamina and Endurance work. We seek a balance between the high impact, slow recovery of Running/Sprinting... and the low impact, quick recovery of Biking/Rowing/Swimming. All have their merits and their particular placement in our programming.

To keep things clean for you, the athlete, I'm providing our standard conversion table for our core approaches. Use these ratios when access to equipment is limited and substitutions are necessary.
