Welcome to the 2nd day of the VO2 Max Booster Program. Yesterday I told you to perform a 1hour workout including a VO2 max test.
Doing a physical test at the beginning of a new training program is a great way to get a picture of your current physical status. When you use physical tests to track your progress, it is important to do tests that are relevant for the physical parameters you want to improve. So in our situation we would like to do a test that will give an estimate of what we can perform at intensities around VO2 max.
Day 2 is the first real step in the VO2 Max Booster Program, the part that makes this training program outstanding and helps you to increase your VO2 max in only 14 days.
Day 2 – Intervals targeted for VO2 max
Today we will start with the real part of the VO2 Max Booster Program, the part that makes this training program outstanding and helps you to increase your VO2 max in only 14 days.
One of the secrets behind this program is time effective focused interval training. Working with higher intensity means you need less time toi achieve similar results. Also it is worth remembering that well trained cyclists need training close to their VO2max to continue improvements of this important physiological parameter.
Total time: 1hr training
20min incremental warm up
10 x (30+30sec) 100 / 50% VO2 Max
30min Easy/medium rolling
This workout is an appetizer for what you wil meet in the next two weeks. Keep up the good work!
