There have been comments about the track pyramid reps – 30 secs easy, 60 secs min hard, 30 secs easy, 90 secs min hard, 30 secs easy, 90 secs min hard, 30 secs easy, 60 secs min hard, 30 secs easy – saying it isn’t a proper pyramid since it has a flat top. Well according to Stephen Fry on QI, the correct word is a frustum, and the Incas in Peru used to build them, not only that, they were larger (in volume) than the pyramids in Egypt. So going forward we will be having frustum reps.
