DESCRIPTION
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.

THE SESSION

The main set of this session is really split into two parts.

First up, three blocks of five minute ‘sweetspot’ intervals. This is an effort that would typically be just above 70.3 / Middle Distance effort – quite hard, but not so tough that it should leave you exhausted. It’s in the ‘bang for your buck’ intensity range, designed to give you a good return in terms of training effect, but still enabling you to maintain quality training without requiring days of recovery.

Having built some fatigue from this first half of the session, you then move on to three sets of 30 seconds ‘on’ (at above FTP effort), 30 seconds ‘off’ intervals. The ‘on’ power is not huge (105% FTP), so the short recovery efforts are not ‘easy spin’ either.

Overall, it’s a solid session; one that you can include within your training quite regularly to provide you with a quality hour of effort without having to dig too deep.



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.
