2min 30sec @ 30% FTP
Stress points: 66
This workout can be likened to a mountain bike race with a hard start - a steady middle and a hard finish as we complete 2 blocks of efforts at 110% of FTP (Zone 5 - Vo2 Max), with an 8 minute block of Zone 3 (80% of FTP) in the middle.
We are going to complete the first block of the Zone 5 efforts at a low cadence (65rpm) to simulate being stuck on a really steep section, where you are having to navigate around rocks.
We will complete the second block of efforts at your chosen cadence, which should feel a lot easier, and certainly less demanding of your muscular strength!
