My favorite cycling workout at the moment…

Here is a good workout to go to try!!  This works on the ability to repeatedly make hard efforts. this application if or crit racers, road racers, mtb bikers.

**I use zones 1-7**

Warm up 10-20 mins

2mins at zone 4

15 sec, Full gas zone 6/7

15sec rest

30 sec full gas again zone 6/7

20 sec rest

45 sec full gas at zone 7.

Rest 1 min then repeat. Repeat 2-4 times as you feel you can. The last 45 sec effort should be between 80-100% of your full 12 sec power

The combination of short rest periods and hard efforts combine to teach your body to deal with lactic acid. This workout should burn!!
