To help you prepare for the Zwift Power Up Training Camp, this workout will replicate the gradual increase in pace leading into a group sprint.

Today you are the sprinter for the team so the last 200m is out of the saddle with full power. The power increases quickly and the effort is 2 minutes.

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!

This session aims to replicate the demands of a mountain bike ride / event.

Mountain biking generally involves far more variations in effort compared with road riding - so plenty of surges and time spent being over geared! We also spend a lot of time 'on and off' the power, so short spells going hard to get over an obstacle, followed by a freewheel or very low power on a descent or little dip.

We touch upon all of these aspects in todays session, as we start off alternating every 30 seconds between riding hard at a low cadence, and riding easy - as if we are riding through an undulating single track. Then we make a ramp in effort, which finishes with a 30 second near max effort up a steep, rocky banking!

Frequently asked questions

FAQ: What do the coloured areas overlapping the elevation profile mean?

Segments along the route are coloured along the height profile. Climbs are indicated with red, sprints with green and other segments (e.g. laps or timed segments) with blue.

FAQ: What do the climb categories , , , and mean?

Climbs are categorized based on how tough they are, which depends both on the climb's length and its average incline. The toughest climbs are rated (HC comes from Hors Cat├ęgorie, which is French for beyond categorization). Less tough climbs are rated as category , less tough climbs than those are rated as , and onwards with and . Any climb less tough than category four does not get a rating.
