Interval Training should be an integral part of your training week and it DOES improve your cycling. At some point, just riding more isn’t enough and you have to add substantial doses of intensity. Once you reach 8-10 hours of cycling per week, improvement slows dramatically or even reverses unless intervals, fast climbs or other hard efforts are included in the mix.
CRT Interval Training covers speed work, cadence, power & strength output, S&E sessions.
Swap a leisurely midweek cruise for a short session of High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). A few brief, gut-busting sessions can improve your endurance as well as much longer rides do. Going hard can prep your muscles to go long.
