The purpose of this turbo trainer session is to improve your ability to cope with changes in pace during group rides, or hanging in over the top of a climb.
The idea is that it will build up your your capacity to produce a high level of power, flooding your legs with lactic acid, and then teach your body how to flush it out again.
Follow the workout in the video below. It lasts for 50 minutes, including your warm-up and warm-down.
