This session is designed to progressively stretch you as you tick-off each interval. The main sets are 4 x 5 minutes, starting just above your FTP and reducing the power after a set duration to just below your FTP.  Start with a good warm up, followed by a Zone 3 low cadence block (60-70 rpm). This is a system priming section and should set you up nicely for the main intervals. Think of this block being comfortably hard, but hardly comfortable!  The 5 minutes are as follows, with "pulling" referring to your power above FTP, and "pushing" referring to power below FTP. Recovery periods are 3 minutes between each interval.  "Pulling"/"Pushing" : 1/4, 2/3, 3/2, 4/1.
