This FTP Booster session is based around four sets of '40 seconds on, 20 seconds off' intervals, each separated by 5 minutes recovery. The number of repetitions will descend each set (10/8/6/4) in number, to reflect to fatigue that will have been accumulated from the previous work. However, don't expect it to get much easier...

A follow up to the original "A bit of speed too" set, the aim of this session is to once again take our steady-state triathlon legs outside of their normal threshold / FTP type efforts and - briefly at least - hits some bigger speed and power numbers.

Once again, we aren't looking to win a Tour stage Sprint any time soon, but a bit of extra speed will wake our legs up a touch...

As triathletes we typically aren't the best at anything significantly above threshold / FTP effort. Steady-state is our game!

In this session we'll attempt to address that a little, by including a series of short (but well above our usual at or around FTP power!) sprints, each one timed after a short block of more conventional threshold efforts. They aim here is develop a little top end power while fatigued. We won't be winning Tour stage Sprints any time soon - but everyone likes a little extra speed, right?!

Maximal Efforts - this is one of my favourite sessions that my coach Andy Jackson from Peaks Consultancy sets. On sporting courses there is not always the opportunity to flat line your effort so being able to go over and under, or over and above is a great way to train the body not to be shocked when you ask it to go beyond what it normally does.

This session is designed for the early part of a winter training plan. Make sure your Zwift FTP setting is right for this time of year. If it's still at peak summer fitness, the session will still bite!
After a short warm up, the session goes into 2 progressive blocks of a 5-step ramp, into a 15 minute interval block.
Enjoy, and thanks for riding! Cheers, Steve.

This session is inspired by the Club Relays, a 4-person event which has been part of the fabric of the UK Triathlon scene for almost three decades.
The workout includes four sets, within each one you increase the effort from Tempo, through to Threshold and then (briefly) into VO2 Max, before a short recovery.
Repeat four times - one each to represent each team member in the virtual relay

This workout consists of a long, easy spin to warm up followed by 3 sets of ascending big gear intervals. The intervals get longer and harder, peaking at 4 minutes at 105% of FTP. Focus on the suggested cadence to keep these challenging and to build leg strength.The workout finishes with another easy spin to cool down. This is a session focussed on building strength rather than hitting big wattages - so follow the cadence prescribed

This week's session will have you working hard, with two blocks of VO2 Max+ efforts. The intervals are relatively short (1 minute), but with 7 back-to-back, will be tough enough to hurt... but short enough that you can hang-in there. That's the plan, anyway!

The session has been compiled by 2018 ETU Middle Distance AG Triathlon Champion, Debbie Coyle. Debbie is also a full-time personal trainer and mum of two. Get ready for her 'Killer 7's'!

Another 'Killer' set from GB Age-Group athlete, Debbie Coyle.

Tonight, Killer Minutes... with extra sting.

The first main set will feature 10x 1minute efforts at 120% FTP (with a 1minute recovery).

For set too, just 30-seconds each... but we go up to 130% :-)

This workout is a variation on the classic Tabata / Ronnestad style short interval workout. After a warm up, we'll complete three blocks of approximately ten minutes with a work to rest ratio of 2:1. As we progress, the intervals get shorter but the power target moves up through your VO2max range. This way, you'll accumulate a good amount of time at this intensity without your lactate levels going through the roof.

This varied set is designed to loosely reflect the course at the Glasgow 2018 European Triathlon Championships at Strathclyde Country Park. A challenging, but fair course, the route undulates throughout with a short but sharp hill on each lap. Work hard on the ups, but make sure you take the (short!) recoveries on the 'downs' from the venue which also hosted the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

A tough interval session of 18 x 2 min efforts.

It's not too hard at first but the rest time drops by 5 seconds each rep. 10 intervals in the first set, 8 in the second with a chance to recover in the middle

It's often easier to push harder towards the end of an interval. This session encourages just that. Enjoy!

The power is not extreme - but keep the cadence low as described to build strength. And then...on the final set we STOMP THE PEDALS for ten, 40-second 'max' efforts with 20 seconds recovery!!

A classic Russian Steps interval session, that starts with a gentle 8 minute warm up before a block of 5 minutes at FTP. A short rest and then 3 x sets of sharp intervals at 115% FTP, as the efforts get longer, the rests get shorter. The workout then finishes with another 5 minute block at FTP before a gentle cool down. This workout will be challenging with lots of short efforts above threshold.

The purpose of this session is to push you to your VO2max ceiling before the effort drops back to FTP, keeping the intensity high will elicit gains in VO2max and therefore aerobic capacity.

The repeated 60 second 125% FTP intervals at the end of the workout are short and achievable but will push you to exhaustion. The duration of time at VO2max during the 60 minute session is around 10 minutes.

This session is via Kyle's coach, Tim Brazier (www.fitter.co.nz)

It's a shorter version of a workout we use to build aerobic capacity and strength endurance. It's a typical early season workout, and we would build the volume over time.
Unders = high Zone, Overs = low Zone3

Athletes can self-select cadence - perhaps using low cadence for the efforts.

Looking to extend your time to exhaustion in this session, by extending the length of the interval and including some time spent near threshold.

The intensity is low enough that the interval can be completed comfortably, yet still creating enough of a stress to improve aerobic capabilities.

The aim is to record the same HR response for both intervals.

A 70 minute session with descending sets of intervals above your ftp. This is a bread and butter set for me. If you are doing it right then about three quarters of the way through the 3 minute intervals you should start feeling the finger tips pulsating, and getting a little uncomfortable in your skin. The last couple are usually very painful, but in reality that is where the workout really starts. If it doesn't hurt, then your body was likely already equipped to perform the job you are asking of it, and thus it is at that point that you are finally crossing over into an area where you don't have adequate machinery to perform the job. The big efforts at the end are mainly to ingrain in the body that we do not slow down at the end of the workout, but rather, pickup the effort.

This is a workout to help develop VO2max and power at VO2max. After the 20min w/up there are 6 reps of 3min. Each includes 10s hard acceleration at the start. This can be performed in or out of the saddle. Then, settle into your race (TT, hoods or drops) position aim to complete the interval. If you need to come out of that position to complete the rep, do so - the idea is for a very hard workout!

If you can complete this then the aim is to add another rep on, not to go harder. Once you are able to accumulate 21-24min of work then you probably need to re-evaluate your FTP - well done!

This is a GIANT of a session, so be prepared to hurt - a real leg burner!!! After a couple of short efforts and some sweetspot work, the real meat of the session - 3 blocks of 10x30secs on / 15secs off at 125% FTP. It's not your conventional interval session... expect to have to dig deep and suffer. The pain is worth it in the end!

This set has been compiled to allow a good percentage of the session to be completed at the upper Z3 / lower Z4 'Sweetspot'. No big power outputs this week, but be prepared mentally to maintain a 'solid' effort for extended periods.
Main set is 7 * 4:00 at Sweetspot with 2mins recovery - the slight twist is that each Sweetspot block is sandwiched by 15 seconds just above FTP at the start and finish, to simulate a strong start / finish which may happen (even if not planned!), in a race.

The session starts with a steady warm-up and three short sets of progressive above FTP efforts to get the legs nicely prepared for the work ahead.
This main set comprises of 5 sets of 6mins at around Sweetspot effort, gently increasing within each set, with the 'kick' being that each set finishes with 30 secs above FTP. Think of that as a short/sharp hill that needs to be crested and forces you out of your(relative!) comfort zone, before recovering and then getting back into your sustainable pace.

Tonight's session is a variation on the popular 2*20 minutes which is a regular (and productive) feature of many TT / Triathlon training schedules.

Each 20 minute block will feature four, one-minute segments above FTP before immediately returning to a tempo effort. Those will provide the 'Twist' to the 'Tempo'... hence, the session name. This will reflect many race situations, where maintaining a very steady power output is simply not feasible, so coping with variability is needed.

The set is a Middle Distance / 70.3 preparation session timed 11 days before The Championship in Samorin, Slovakia. It includes a mix of intervals and Big Gear Work. Longer than our normal session, the 'Decider' is this - will you hang tough and stay on for the final 12minute effort at above FTP, or is that the point at which your session ends? YOU DECIDE !!!!
The session has been set by Tri Sutto coach, Rafal Medak for Chris Standidge and his Total Tri Training athletes.

This session is inspired by 'Facing the Dragon' at IRONMAN Wales!
This session includes:
1) A progressive (3-part) warm up.
2) An extended sub-threshold block, including two short periods above FTP, to simulate a short hill before getting back to race pace.
3) Some short, high power surges to enhance ability to hit higher wattages on steep sections.
4) Two 'over-under' blocks to challenge your FTP level and ability to cope with variability to your pacing.
