Best done in the middle of your training phase, this tempo workout requires you to continuously increase the intensity of the work section as the time spent working decreases. It’s a short, but challenging set where you start off relatively easy, but you end up above your FTP.
Adding this workout to your training will help your body get used to performing negative splits (a good thing) and help increase your lactate threshold. Higher intensity workouts help increase your performance in a multitude of ways, but make sure to slowly build up these workouts during your training phases.
This workout is best done on a trainer indoors to minimize distractions and interruptions, this set can also be done outdoors on an open road. Your cadence should be above 85.
