Workout description: Warm up completely. Sprint Intervals (SI) are MAXIMAL efforts lasting less than 25 seconds total. When training with a power meter, your watts should be 200%+ of your FTP power. Remaining miles at ISM pace or below. Starting at 10-13 mph in the large chainring and approximately your 16 tooth cog, apply maximum force to the pedals and accelerate for 8-10 seconds. When maximum speed is reached, hold the effort for 12-15 seconds, not allowing speed or power to drop. Rest will be 3-5 minutes between efforts or as prescribed by your coach. Note that SI are fundamentally different than 10/20 intervals, as SI are performed with full recovery between efforts.
