Cycling workout of the week #11: Sweetspot blocks [1hr] – AKA ‘the best bang for your buck’ training


Sweetspot has often been referred to as ‘the best bang for your buck’ training. It enables us to accumulate the most training stress within the shortest time sustainably. With this session, you’re really making the most of the time you spend churning away on a turbo trainer.

Working close to – but not above – Critical Power means that the effort is sustainable for periods of up to an hour. It is also useful for improving our pain threshold.
