WOTD: High Tension Intervals

Posted on

Ride: Include 5 x 5 minutes (5 minutes recovery) of high tension intervals.

High Tension Intervals: Cadence and gearing should be low.  Shift into the large chain ring in the front and the smallest cog at the rear.

Ride on a flat road and pedal at 60-65 RPM.

Effort level is top of zone 1-bottom zone 2 during the interval (PE: 2/5).  Pedal normal during rest periods.

The purpose of performing high tension intervals is to increase muscular strength necessary for hill climbing and time trialing.
