I first heard of this workout from @swag72 when TrainNow (perhaps on it’s most sadistic day ever) suggested Johnson as a VO2Max workout for @swag72. At the time I though @swag72 must have, for sure, bullied TrainNow in Jr. High because the Johson ride feed looked like total carnage.
About 85% of riders who attempt this workout are unable to complete it.
But I think it’s a workout that is well within reach for most on this forum. So, come on, forum, let’s clean the Johnson ride feed up a little bit. Step up and put a Big Swingin’ Johnson on your ride history.
Post your successfully (or not) completed rides here & tell me if this workout really is such a back breaker or if it’s just a paper tiger.
