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.

After a warm-up do one 10-minute interval at Threshold, followed by 10 minutes of recovery. Then ride at Threshold for 20-30 minutes, followed by ten 20-second bursts. For the bursts, start out of the saddle and push your cadence to 100 rpm in all-out intervals - hammer these. Rest 2-3 minutes between intervals. Cool Down.

Better Cycling - Tempo + 20s Big Gear Efforts

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.
