TRI247 Workout Series: Tempo with a Twist
Group Workout
Every Wednesday at 7pm UK-time, 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.


We’ve got another new session for you this week to add to the TRI247 Workout Series archive. This workout is a variation on the popular (and productive) 2*20minutes sets which are a regular feature of many TT / Triathlon training schedules.

Each 20 minute block will feature four, one-minute segments above FTP before immediately returning to a Tempo effort. Hence ’Tempo with a Twist’ is the session name.

Often in races, it is not possible to maintain power at a steady level, and so training for variability will make it more comfortable on race day, when race and / or course dynamics mean that you have no choice to ride in that manner.


This week’s session has been set and will be lead by TRI247 Editor, John Levison.

A multiple Ironman finisher ‘back in the day’, he’s more likely to be found at events these days either commentating, interviewing or reporting than racing. That said, he still likes to train when he can and Zwift has become his ‘go to’ training tool over the past year and more.


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.
