This workout has been created to work at a percentage of your FTP - So as long as your FTP is correctly set in the iMi App then the wattage figures will automatically adjust to your training level
Assuming FTP = 280
Warm Up for for 12mins building up to 100% FTP then take 5mins easy spinning.
Then go into 45mins of effort at 220-230w with a smooth steady cadence ~90rpm. Make the last 20secs of each 5th Minute a seated, HARD effort, push up by 1-2 gears and get revs up, aiming for ~420-500w. Look to get back to tempo levels straight after each effort if you can.
Cool down with 5-10mins easy spinning.
The 20 Sec efforts ARE NOT a flat out sprint. Before each one, get your cadence up to 95-100rpm, then try to sustain for the 20secs.
