Anyone got any advice on good interval workouts to have a crack at?
I know the Tabata protocol is a pretty popular way to get a lot of meaningful training done in a very short period of time. I’m nowhere near fit enough to nail a Tabata workout, but am structuring sessions accordingly with 8 efforts. Still aaaaages away from getting down to the protocol quota of 20sec efforts with 10sec rest, but am slowly narrowing the gap.
Looking at YouTube clips and whatnot, have noticed that people seem to always be doing these workouts on a trainer with a road bike in a big gear. Is it completely unrealistic to think that a workout like Tabata is achievable on rollers with a track bike, getting up to some pretty high-ish cadences during efforts? Or is it do-able?
Here’s a good article http://britishcyclesport.com/2013/training/tabata-intervals/
Also keen to see what other sort of training people are doing on the rollers, if any. Generic Hipster and Dalai, I’m looking at you.
