On this week's podcast, Derek is back in action as we take an in-depth look at HIIT, High-Intensity Interval Training. Cycling training can be just like diets with all the fads out there it can be hard to decipher which training method is best for you. In this podcast, we discuss why HIIT should be the primary weapon in your Winter Training Arsenal and how it can help you avoid the dreaded "uni-zone." Get your pens out as we breakdown how to create the perfect HIIT intervals that include multiple training zones that will actually translate to better cycling performance on climbs, time trialing, pacelines, attacks, and surges. In addition to the zones, we give you the full picture of what execution skills to include when crafting your training plan that will not only make you a better cyclist but are a lot more stimulating and fun. Finally, we finish off on we've implemented the HIIT training into our system that last couple of weeks with the Tour De Cinchmas. A company-wide stage race competition that has kept our athletes at the top of their game through one of the most challenging training times of the year.
