I don't know much about the science here, but the key to Sprint 8 is that the intevals be "ragged edge" where you absolutely punish your body on every sprint, going so fast that it's almost impossible to keep going for the full 30 seconds. This is hard to do, even on 90 seconds rest. I've done it a few times and find that my workout is at its most intense either on a stationary bike or running outside. When I've done it on the C2 or the treadmill it's hard to work up to the desired intensity fast enough. That being said, I don't know if it's what you're after. Have you tried Tabata intervals? Those will put your face in the dirt pretty quick
