Workout Wednesday - High-Speed Cycling Session


I wholeheartedly advocate incorporating VO2 Max training, the 90–100 percent effort zone where maximal top speed gains are made especially for short course training.

With high-speed gains there are also high risks, making your warm-ups and cool-downs essential.

It’s best to do this session when you are most rested and will have the energy to hit your highest numbers for the week. The work-to-rest ratio needs ensure that you get maximal recovery after every interval.

For a well-trained athlete, that’s equal work to rest, but it may be more rest to make sure that you continue to hit the high numbers.
