VO2 Max workouts help to improve your fitness level. It is great to add these sessions once a week into your training. VO2 Max workouts increase your body’s ability to use oxygen, increase your cycling efficiency, and build strength and ability to produce power.
Here is a short VO2 Max bike workout:
WU: Do a nice long warm-up to ensure your body is ready to push some high watts. Start with a warm-up spin, then get things firing with a step-up set:
5 x 30s with full min rest between and do them at 90/100/110/120/130% FTP
Spin for 1:30 after the last one
MS: 2-3 rounds of:
5 x 90s at 130% FTP/3min ez spin between and 5mins ez spin between rounds
CD: Cool down spin
Happy hard riding!
