SweetSpot Over/Unders

Zone 4 Over/Unders- Target 20 minute blocks of sweet-spot work designed to raise the sustained power threshold from beneath. Also will help acclimate to 20 minute sustained efforts- and the "fluctuating" load will keep leg speed variable.

Warm Up: Steady 15 minutes of zone 1 intensity. Keep cadence comfortable but work in some high RPM 1 minute spin ups.

Main Set: (2) 20 minute blocks of SweetSpot Over/Unders. 5 minutes rest between blocks.
-Blocks will each be (5) 4:00 intervals, alternating between 85% and 95% intensity.

Cool Down: 10 minutes at 60%, followed by 5 minutes at 50%

Notes: Self-selected cadence is fine for these intervals. For the WarmUp and CoolDown portion, spin slightly higher than you normally would. Around 100rpm is great.
