HIT Group Ride Master

Have you ever found yourself at the wrong end of a group ride when the gas gets turned up?  Do you lack the ability to accelerate to hang onto a group?  Are your pulls at the front in need of some serious work?

This HIT training plan will help you to change that.  This HIT workout is designed to mimic the experience of riding within a group of 4 or 5 people.  You'll sit in, ramp up as you approach the front, take your pull and then drift off to recover and do it all over again.  A series of varying length “Zone 5 repeat-like” intervals with short rest will teach your body the following:

  • How to accelerate to harder efforts without jumping off the saddle
  • How to hold onto a harder effort (like a pull on the front or an acceleration)
  • How to recover near sweet spot

Purchase today to turn your group ride from a dreaded fear to a spine tingling thrill.


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.
