Try these five sets of our favourite turbo trainer workouts, and take your biking to the next level.
Session 2: threshold booster (41-65mins)
This session is designed to raise lactate threshold and your ability to perform near it.
5mins spinning while increasing gearing/resistance, followed by 5mins of 10secs sprint and 50secs recovery.
3-6 x 5mins with 3min recoveries. Shift to the big chainring and work hard for 5mins (aiming for a heart rate 15-25 beats below your maximum or, if using power, FTP).
At the end of 5mins, drop to the small chainring, drop the resistance and spin easy for 3mins. Repeat this work/recovery cycle for three to six reps depending on ability.
10mins easy spinning.
