Spaded Sweetie
Group Workout

We start off with a "spade" interval set off very hard, but short, and gradually reducing the intensity while upping the time, only to go back up again! From there, we will move into a progressive over/under sweet spot interval featuring changes in cadence and intensity that culminates in a 1 minute FULL GAS effort! This is a tough workout, but features a lot of quality time at VO2 and Threshold and excellent training stress, all in an hour! You can do it!

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. For more info on FTP go to: a new window
