Short on time and ready for a kick-butt workout? The below VO₂ workout is a lung-busting fitness boost that will get your endorphins flowing and rev your metabolism. VO₂ max refers to how much oxygen your body can take in and use (oxygen uptake) while exercising. Doing workouts like this one can help increase your VO₂ max over time, resulting in an increase in your body’s capacity to perform aerobically. Don’t let the short workout fool you–it packs a punch. Give it a try!
Get in a solid 20 min warm-up including 3-5 x 15 or more seconds at FTP or above with 30-45 seconds rest.
Then head into the main set for three rounds of:
5 x 40s HARD (~150% FTP or 9.5-10 RPE)/20s easy spin
Spin easy for 3 minutes between rounds.
Be sure to finish with cool down of at least 10 minutes
Ride hard and have fun!
