After 3 minutes of steady warm-up you will head into 14 minutes of tempo riding, that is roughly 80% of your lactate threshold power. Every two minutes you'll do a 20 second sprint as hard as you possibly can. Finally you will finish with three minutes of steady riding to cool down, although it might be a good idea to cool down for a little longer.
You won't be recovering completely between your sprints, so by the end of the session, you'll definitely be hurting quite hard!

Not all exercises are suitable for everyone - there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach. As with any strenuous exercise, you should take into account factors such as your flexibility, strength and overall health to determine if an exercise is appropriate for you, and consult a doctor/physician before beginning a programme of exercise. Discontinue your exercise session immediately if you experience any pain, dizziness or discomfort.
Partaking in training sessions following GCN's video instruction is entirely at your own risk, and Global Cycling Network, its partners and its affiliated companies cannot be held responsible for any injuries which may occur as a result of these exercises.
