ZA 2018 Workout #1: Over Ones
Group Workout

Welcome to Zwift Academy! This first workout is a high intensity session looking at your ability to produce quality race efforts over 1 minute in duration. There is ample recovery between the intervals, so you will be able to produce your best efforts for the target duration.


Kevin Poulton. Having over 15 years of coaching experience, the successful implementation of indoor training at Powerhouse Cycling has allowed athletes to achieve success across a wide range of events. We have devised methods of training that allow your indoor training to compliment your work completed on the road.

Under the guidance of Powerhouse Cycling, athletes have won Paris-Roubaix, Grand Tour stages, World Tour classics, and numerous National and State Championships.

I have been coaching, racing and training with power meters since the late 90's and have successfully implemented their use into my training programs. My interest in exercise physiology ensures I keep up to date with the latest scientific studies, with this knowledge being passed onto our athletes.

Zwifters line up in the starting area just like a normal event and once the event starts, workout mode begins. Everyone stays together regardless of power output. That's right, if you're outputting 100W and another Zwifter is outputting 400W you will stay in exactly the same position relative to each other. Only if you stop pedaling and fall 6 meters behind the group will the rubber-banding stop.


We highly recommend doing one of the FTP tests as the estimated FTP can be inaccurate and make the difficulty level of the workouts too high for your current fitness level.
