5 minute VO2-Max Intervals

This is a classic workout for all endurance sports. I used it for rowing where 5 minutes is close to the race distance but it's a staple for cycling, XC ski and running when building aerobic capacity is the goal.

During the warm-up do some accelerations and several one minute periods at LT intensity.

SUB-THRESHOLD/SWEET SPOT WORK

From Training peak
“Sweet Spot” occurs at 83 to 97 percent of your FTP and riding here can help improve the aerobic, steady state efforts that characterize FTP. Sweet Spot gets it’s name because it is a balanced amount of intensity and volume. You can achieve more positive physiological adaptations than if you were to ride harder at zone 4/threshold. By riding below your FTP it is a more repeatable workout and won’t take quite as much out of you. Do these efforts on a stretch of road without interruptions, and focus on maintaining a steady effort. A steady grade 3 to 5 percent hill works very well.

Start with 3×8 minutes at “sweet spot” with 4 minutes easy spinning in between. Build up to 3×10 minute with 5 minutes easy spinning in between.
