Start with a really good 15 to 20 minute warm up. Be sure to incorporate a 10 to 30 second hard effort for every 3 minutes during the warm up. Begin at 100W and increase the resistance level 30W every 3 minutes. 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 an interval. When you have reached the last interval that you are able to complete, finish with a 1 minute all effort to reach your maximum heart rate. Cool down for 15 to 20 Min.
