Sample Day 1
BRT 001 Bike Ramp Test

Bike Ramp Test Indoor Trainer. Start with a really good 15 to 20 min warm up. Incorporate 30 sec hard efforts after every 3 min. Start at 100W and increase your resistance level for 30watt every 3 min. Maintain a seated position and a cadence above 80 rpm for the duration of the test. Continue to increase the power every 3 minutes until you cannot complete the interval. When you have reached the last interval that you are able to complete, finish with a 1 min all out effort to reach your max HR.
Cool down for 10 to 15min easy.

Use the Max Power (watt) and Max HR to complete your power and HR profile in your TrainingPeaks account.

Sample Day 6
CS 001: MTB/Cyclocross Skills

This workout is about skills. This can be done as a cyclocross-specific ride involving corning, dismounts/mounts, bunny hops, braking and other handling elements.
The point is to spend a concentrated 60/90' working directly on skills. Repetition, repetition, repetition.

Do not worry too much about effort level. Overall, the workout should not be too physically taxing (except as it relates to the skills). Have fun
