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.

VO2 Max intervals - 3 minutes x 5 reps

These are going to hurt a bit :) Luckily they are over quickly. 20 minutes warmup in Zone 2, then 3 minutes at Zone 5 wattage or HR. 3 minutes recovery, then repeat for a total of 5 intervals. Cool down for at least 20 minutes. DON'T make the mistake of starting these off too hard and tapering off - the last should be just as intense as the first. Enjoy :)
