EVENT DESCRIPTION
ABOUT THIS WORKOUT

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!

WORKOUT DESIGNER

Kevin Poulton - With more than 20 years experience coaching athletes at the World Tour level, Kevin has spent the past two decades designing workouts and structured training plans to help cyclists achieve their goals. He’s coached countless athletes to wins in Grand Tour stages and one-day Classics, including Mat Hayman’s 2016 Paris-Roubaix victory.

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.
