HIT Finish Faster

hitfinishfasterhistogram If you've ever found yourself on the last lap of a race or in the final stretch of a fast group ride and you just didn't have the power to out-kick your rivals, this HIT workout is for you.  Each part of this 45 minute workout is designed to help you finish faster, from the last lap to the last meters of a sprint.  Designed to train high intensity physiology and recoverability, you'll be:

  • Learning to attack hard over and over again.
  • Training your body to maintain a hard steady effort.
  • Finally, you'll put the two together in a last lap hero breakaway that will train your ability to finish fast.
  • 45 minutes
  • Trains: VO2 max, fatigue resistance, accelerated recovery, repeated efforts

About the Author:

After graduating from Ithaca College with a degree in Exercise and Sport Science/Pharmacology, I continued my education with a doctorate of Chiropractic from New York Chiropractic College. As I progressed through my education, I was able to apply the concepts I learned in the lab to my own daily workouts and goals. At the time, I was following some of the principles of traditional coaching and getting mediocre results. Frustrated, I realized that if I could apply all my physiology, chemistry, nutrition and training knowledge, I could “build a better mousetrap” not just for my own training, but for other athletes. With this goal in mind, I started Tailwind Coaching, to help cyclists [with busy lives and limited training time] become stronger, faster, fitter and healthier. And while I may not be a ex-ProTour rider, an Olympic Coach or even a prolific race winner, I am something that most coaches are not: a regular guy just like you who has a job, a family and a desire to be a stronger cyclist.
