No Pettit, no Whorl. :wink: Those are MY favorites.

I’m looking to improve my sprint, but the TR sprint workouts seem a bit advanced/complex. In the past I’ve had good results improving short power by focusing on max efforts, so when its time my plan is to do something simple like start with 2-4 sets of full gas 4x15-sec (15-sec full gas, 15-sec recovery) efforts. Then after a couple weeks reassess. So I guess you could say Pettit +1 on steroids.

Fuji or Berryessa

I have always done them in ERG mode, but keep planning on resistance mode the next time so as to not be limited by the ERG mode.

While not TR, I sometimes do something similar on Zwift. For example, I’ll pick a short loop course like Volcano circuit, Volcano CCW, or LaGuardia Loop. After a 10-15min warmup, do a max effort 20s sprint each lap (4-6min) Repeat at least 6x.

This type of workout is what I do when I really don’t feel like doing anything :smile:

None. Sprints are much better outside.

My limited experience so far with ERG mode on my Atom is that trying to do very short duration higher power intervals isn’t that great. The power takes a second or so to adjust up and then fluctuates a bit due to the nature of full gas efforts

In contrast - just going for it outdoors on my bike and using my Wahoo as a guide for time feels easier to manage and ultimately more productive (for me at least)

For these reasons I’m going to try loading a TR workout on my Wahoo head unit (if I can figure out how to do that) and see what the outdoor workout is like for one of the sprint training options
