The goal of this workout is to increase muscular endurance by coupling long, high-intensity intervals with short rest periods. The idea is to help athletes build a tolerance to higher intensities as their season progresses. By incorporating these types of workouts into a training schedule book-ended by rest, athletes will increase both power and endurance.
Cadence should fall in the 90rpm range or higher for all intervals.
