2 sets of 10 x 30 second intervals (30 seconds on; 30 sec recovery)

Warm up very thoroughly; these hurt a bit.

Once warmed up, find a flat to moderately uphill road with no stops for at least a 7-8 minute stretch at high speed.

Begin by pedaling 30 seconds Zone 6 power (or as hard as you can, in other words). Immediately take 30 seconds easy pedaling (Zone 2 - this will feel really easy at this point, in comparison). After 30 seconds Zone 2 go back to 30 seconds as hard as possible. Repeat over and over until you have done 10 x 30-second hard efforts. This is the end of the first work set.

Spin lightly for 5 minutes. Then repeat as above for a second work set of 10 x 30-second intervals.

Spin lightly to recover for at least 10 minutes.

FTP Test

This workout is what Hunter Allen recommends for testing your FTP. The test is actually supposed to be 20 minutes, but I ride a 10 mile time trial which takes me around 25 minutes. I wish it only took me 20 :-)

**20 Minute FTP Test

This workout is what Hunter Allen recommends for testing your FTP.

After completing the test interval, this workout will calculate your FTP HR and power, and prompt you to save them to your account and settings. NOTE: if you clone and edit this workout, this feature will be lost. In this case you can manually calculate FTP as follows:

After finishing, upload your workout to iMobileIntervals, TrainingPeaks, Garmin Connect, or download it over Dropbox/email and find the average watts for the 20 minute effort. Multiply by 0.95. That is your Functional Threshold Power (FTP). You should enter this value in your iMobileIntervals.com website account settings or in the iMobileIntervals app settings in order to use workouts that use %FTP to control the KICKR in ERG mode, as well as display target watts/zone/perceived exertion in the app for any type of interval workout. To do the same with heart rate, multiply by 0.97.

Other ways of determining FTP (via Coggan):

1) from inspection of a ride file.
2) from power distribution profile from multiple rides.
3) from blood lactate measurements (better or worse, depending on how it is done).
4) based on normalized power from a hard ~1 h race.
5) using critical power testing and analysis.
6) from the power that you can routinely generate during long intervals done in training.
7) from the average power during a ~1 h TT (the best predictor of performance is performance itself).

2 X 20 Treshold Interval Workout - with 1-minute hard efforts

2 X 20 Threshold Interval Workout - with 1-minute hard efforts

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.
