Proper execution– is a skill




Output (wattage) of the first interval is the same as the
last interval
All intervals done in the proper zone
Output: most reliable indicators are wattage compared
with HR. Speed and HR are more practical in most cases,
however, speed is affected by many variables (wind, hills,
drafting).
Improper execution




Output (wattage) drops substantially from the 1st to last
interval
Heart rate or training zone increases as output decreases
Not training in the correct zone
Not allowing for adequate recovery between intervals
RECOVERY is the most
important
–the guy below had help part of
training
Workout during super
compensation phase
Fitness gain
Base fitness
Workout before super
compensation phase
Base fitness
Fitness loss
Insufficient recovery =
performance decrease!
Sufficient recovery =
performance gains!
Theoretical Optimal Rest Periods:
Rest
Extreme
> 72 hours
Large
48-72 hours
Substantial
24-48 hours
Medium
12-24 hours
Light
< 24 hours
Optimal recovery ensures complete repair of tissue to
point of conditioning and beyond
