About the session:
The benefit of this workout is the cumulative fatigue over the whole session, not the max effort of any single interval and is designed to enhance your power.

1. A progressive warmup.
2. 4-minute TT effort (aim to ride this on feel - get 95% effort out, so you are not totally exhausted after each block) in a heavy gear (this is not a 55-60rpm effort, rather the gear should feel slightly large (e.g. one sprocket top big) i.e. 70-75rpm. You should pace the effort, aiming to build the intensity throughout the effort to finish strong. Cadence circa 70rpm.
3. 5-minutes easy pedalling. Repeat steps 2 and 3 a further 3 times (4 efforts in total).
