My Movie and a Workout

Workout:



Aerobic Capacity Repeats TT6min Pace (or CP6):

Rollers (with resistance fan) and fixie mountain bike

Warm-up:

My mountain bike race protocol (I am sure you have your own) ~ 30 min

Repeats:

5 x TT6min pace , 1:1 work to rest,

Benefits:

4 min at near maximal aerobic capacity for each repetition

Note:

This is an extremely taxing workout that should be used just as you are nearing the race season (i.e., now) or during peak periods (e.g., before Provincials or Nationals). A bonus is that this strenuous work is beneficial for building lactate tolerance and prepping you for the crazy ass demands of racing till you puke. Use this type of workout sparingly or you will have trouble recovering. As I said it is extremely taxing both physiologically and psychologically.

Comment:

The highest intensity that can be sustained for six minutes produces optimal results for aerobic capacity workouts

Cool Down & Movie:

Blaxploitation at its best.
