Today, we'll be aiming for around 16mins of VO2 Max time and incorporating a 40/20 interval approach which will challenge you for sure! Let's make it happen today! REMINDER: You can always adjust the FTP bias via the arrow keys on your keyboard, or the Zwift Companion app. Once you get over threshold, using a %FTP for workout prescription can get murky, so always adjust as needed.

Ham Sandwich features sweet spot over/unders, with 30/30s "sandwiched" in between. The over/under intervals are alternate between 2 min @88% FTP and 30 secs @110% FTP. The 30/30s up the ante a bit and alternate between 30 secs @130% FTP and 30 secs @50% FTP. Yes, there are rest breaks, but they are purposely short to keep the heart rate and metabolic demands up. Better eat your sandwich quick before the bread gets soggy...

Sustaining high levels of lactate requires specific training. This ability to tolerate lactate only comes with precise intervals in training. We can all produce a one off effort to build lactate, but with carefully planned intervals we can maintain this high level of lactate for an extended period. This is where the training effect happens!

After a warm-up, we will move into 2x (15 mins alternating between 2 mins @85% FTP, and a 30 second surge effort (110+ RPM) @105% FTP). We will be mixing up the cadence and position on the bike throughout the course of the workout as well to further challenge your basic skills and on-bike flexibility.
