Jump on spin bike after leg workout, get a feel for the bike for a couple of minutes (legs are already warmed up plenty!) then add a little resistance and belt out some Tabatas. Legs don't like that at all. I struggle to get my heart rate past 150.
OK, switch to standing hill climbs. One minute standing, big load, and really trying to run on the pedals (Legs aren't co-operating with these either) and one minute recovery.
*sigh* At the 16-minute mark, get OFF the bike and walk on a treadmill for ten minutes.
Some days you've got it, some days you don't. The days when you just trained legs with supersets? It's probably asking a bit much to expect to follow that up with a killer cardio workout....
At least cardio got done. :o)
