Wednesday Windtrainer Workout: 3x 6 minute Threshold Intervals

Threshold intervals are a great way to increase your tolerance for riding hard.  Use this workout to boost your speed and endurance. This is great for all cyclists including mountain bikers and triathletes.

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.

3x 6min

  • 10min WU Level II;
  • 3x 6min Level IV, 2min Level II RI;
  • 10min CD Level I-II;
  • 10min Stretching

The warm-up (WU) should be done at an intensity that is steady but not overconsuming at Level II. Ride for a minimum of 10 minutes.

The main set: ride hard for six minutes at Level IV, then ride easily at Level II for two minutes as your Rest Interval (RI).  Repeat this set a total of three times.

Conclude the ride with a cool down (CD) of ten minutes riding at Level II.

Finish with 10 minutes of stretching to assist with the recovery.
