EVENT DESCRIPTION
TRI247 WORKOUT SERIES

Every Wednesday at 7pm GMT, Tri247 present a triathlon focused workout brought to you by a guest 'coach.' This will include sessions by pro triathletes, coaches and notable characters associated with the sport.

The workouts are about 60 minutes long and designed to add variety and interest to your weekly training schedule over the entire season.

This session was chosen as one of our favourites from the Zwift '4 Week FTP Booster' program, which was built by Coach Kevin Poulton, a World Tour Coach who has guided athletes to victory at the Paris-Roubaix, Grand Tour stage wins and more. If you are looking for some structure in your training, it’s a well constructed training plan – this is a taster of that.

After a progressive warm-up and a four minute 'primer,' the bulk of the session is two, 20-minute efforts as:

7min [Z3] - 83%
3min [Z4] - 95%
7min [Z3] - 83%
3min [Z4] - 95%

There is a 5minute recovery period between each block.

The intensity of the efforts in this workout are relatively low, but focus is required due do to their length, which will provide the stimulus needed to improve your aerobic capacity. An ideal midweek workout if you are racing this coming weekend.

WORKOUT DESIGNER

This week’s session will be lead by TRI247 Sales and Marketing Manager, Paul Shanley. He claims he’s not at peak fitness right now, so might need a Ride On!

ABOUT GROUP WORKOUTS

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.

HELPFUL HINT

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.
