Sepp's Favorite Over-Under Workout

From Velo News February 2018 issue: Sepp Kuss's Favorite Over-Under Workout: Two 20-minute blocks, each block consists of five segments, with each segment comprising a three-minute sub-threshold effort, followed by a one-minute VO2max burst; promptly return to sub-threshold. Repeat.

Why do this workout?
Sustained by not steady training: Even time trialists can benefit from training their ability to respond and recover. Try doing "over-unders", alternating between efforts just above and below threshold.

1x20 threshold interval workout - with 1-minute hard efforts

Total of 20 min of intervals @ 85-105% FTP.

The most difficult workout of the week, in most cases. Show up reasonably well-rested and ready to work! Plan for effective post-workout recovery nutrition and sleep for maximal results.

NOTE: this time, every 5 minutes of the interval (so at minute 5, 10, 15, 20), stand and go approximately 120% of threshold power for 1 minute. Recover in the saddle at threshold effort between these standing efforts. Remember that HR will take time to drop after the efforts, so go by feel until HR stabilizes. Cool down thoroughly :)
