I LOVE a timer drill. There’s just something about being able to hit ‘start’ and not worry about keeping up with the intervals, BUT still spitting all the motivation to my riders as I can. (This drill I’m about to share is also super awesome and rather clutch, if you ask me, if you need a quick 30 minute, grueling workout — just do a warmup +2 rounds of the drill).This drill can be used as a grueling strength interval, sprint interval, or raceday ride extravaganza (which is what I do – A fantastic way to test your riders)! Really, the sky is the limit! Be creative and enjoy! 1 Round is 12 minutes. I usually do 3 rounds max with my crew and include TONs of warm up and cool down time; 10-15 minutes each wu/cd.
Work can be done seated or standing (please, if you use this for a sprint interval, sprint seated), but keep it consistent for the entire step/round. 100% effort is required for the WORK portions, followed by all out recovery. Definitely not for the faint of heart, but you have got this!!
