The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of including 30-s sprints in one weekly low-intensity training (LIT) session during a 3-wk transition period in elite cyclists.
I thought this was interesting, and something I’d like to incorporate during my transition phase. This is the phase between now and when I start a Sweet Spot Base plan. During this time–4-6 weeks–I will be doing strength training and endurance rides. For interest, I’ll be incorporating the workout from the study that involves 30 second sprints. I’ve designed the workout with the TrainerRoad workout builder and have uploaded it here:
