Dan Empfield returns! Back for round two!! (Sorry to everyone who experienced the hiccups of round 1 two weeks ago...)
ABOUT SLOWTWITCH INDOORS
Every Tuesday at 4pm PST, Slowtwitch.com will bring you a triathlon-focused workout designed and led by a guest 'coach.' We will include sessions from pro athletes and coaches, as well as the Slowman himself, Dan Empfield.
For this sixth edition, the workout will be led by the Slowman himself. Dan Empfield is back to lead his second ride and is looking forward to talking all things triathlon, Slowtwitch, bike fit, and everything else.
The workouts are about 60 minutes long and designed to add variety and interest to your weekly training schedule over the Winter.
ABOUT THIS WORKOUT
Because of the relatively short rest in between intervals this is a challenging workout to do on the road because you need either a fairly long hill or an extremely steep one because it is nearly impossible to get back to the start otherwise. As a result a workout like this is ideally suited to indoor training because the challenge of finding suitable topography is reduced.
8x4min SST High (96%) with 2min EZ
5min ez freeride cooldown
ABOUT GROUP WORKOUTS
Zwifters line up in the starting area just like a normal event and once the event starts, workout mode begins. Everyone stays together regardless of power output. That's right, if you're outputting 100W and another Zwifter is outputting 400W you will stay in exactly the same position relative to each other. Only if you stop pedaling and fall 6 meters behind the group will the rubber-banding stop.
We highly recommend doing one of the FTP tests as the estimated FTP can be inaccurate and make the difficulty level of the workouts too high for your current fitness level.
