This session is a great way to develop your anaerobic capacity and top-end speed. It is perfect for road cyclists and mountain bikers as it develops your ability to ‘jump’ which will assist you to surge to create or join a break, and for the Mountain Bikers will help you surge away from your competitors.
Each Wednesday I’ll post a Windtrainer Workout that you can do in about 60 minutes to enhance your cycling. See a previous post about training intensity (Levels) to know how hard to work. If you are working directly with Coach Ray he will in most cases prescribe either a Power Zone or Heart Rate Zone to work within if you are training with these tools.
10x 15 seconds
- 10min Warm Up Level II;
- 10x 15sec Level V+ Sprint, 2:45min Level II RI;
- 10min Cool Down Level II;
- 10min Stretching
Start the workout with a warm-up of ten minutes of easy riding at Level II.
The main set involves ten reps of a 15-second sprint at Level V+ (absolutely give it everything you have for these 15 seconds). Follow this up with 2:45 minutes Rest Interval at Level II.
Conclude with ten minutes of riding at Level II for your Cool Down.
Finish with ten minutes of stretching to assist with your recovery.
