Wednesday, 3rd October 7.00pm UK time on Zwift

Here are the details of tonight’s TRI247 Workout Series group session on Zwift. Another new workout this evening compiled by your Editor, which we are calling ‘40/20’s FTP Booster‘.

The 40/20’s FTP Booster session

Tonight’s session is based around four sets of ’40 seconds on, 20 seconds off’ intervals, each separated by five minutes recovery. When ‘on’ you’ll be working well above FTP power, approaching VO2 Max levels, before a short recovery and repeat.

Starting with 10 reps, subsequent blocks will be 8, 6 and 4 respectively… but with the accumulated fatigue, will the session get easier or harder as we progress through the hour? Join us and find out!

Joining Instructions:

The workout will begin promptly at 7.00pm UK time, Wednesday 3rd October 2018. It is worth logging in 10 or 15 minutes before the session to make sure you are set up and ready to go, where you will be able to warm up in the virtual ‘holding pen’.

Look for the TRI247 Workout Series event in the list on the right of the screen once you have paired your sensors. Click to JOIN and you will be taken to the start line ready to begin the workout.

Make sure you have set your FTP level correctly before you join the workout as all the intervals are based on a percentage of FTP so it is important to get that right. If in doubt, dial the FTP number down 10 or 20 watts as it is better to finish the session than to feel like it is too challenging.

If you have never used Zwift before but don’t want to miss out, head to the Zwift support page for tips on how to get the most out of your setup.

After the session head over to the TRI247 Facebook page for some post ride chat.

Zwift Group Rides: TRI247 Workout Series

The cool thing about a group workout on Zwift is that varying levels of ability can ride together in a group and all finish the session together having done the same relative effort, even if the actual watts are significantly different. It is not a race, but a shared goal to get a good session in the training log.
