TRI247 Workout Series: The Tom Davis 4x4
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.


This week’s session features four tough (FTP+) efforts, each of four minutes – hence the session name. While those efforts will be tough – physically and mentally – you will also get significant recovery between efforts, so there’s plenty of time to regroup from any suffering… before you go again.

Use this session to hold the full aero position if you are riding a TT / Tri bike. It’s a great opportunity to develop your ability to produce power in a race position. That will pay off come race day…


This week’s session will be lead by British long-distance triathlon professional, Tom Davis.

Tom is a member of the ERDINGER Alkoholfrei International squad, which boasts such talent as Patrick Lange, Andreas Raelert and Daniela Bleymehl.

A fine swimmer, Tom is typically at or near the front of most of the events he races in from the start. Never afraid to race hard, he’s not one to sit back and this approach has seen him make rapid progress and secure a host of top international finishes over the past two seasons. Still young and relatively new to the sport, expect to hear a lot more about Tom Davis over the coming years.

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.
