Turbo Training Intervals – Up the Wattage

Yes, another turbo trainer post as I’m enjoying my work-outs on it at the moment.

I thought I would try another 1 minute interval session today. So I did exactly the same session as I did on Saturday, but this time increased the wattage on the hard efforts from 320 Watts to 340 Watts.

Surprisingly it felt OK and I completed it without falling off in an exhausted heap. My Heart Rate graph was pretty again but actually peaked at slightly less despite the higher power output. Maximum was 162 bpm this time as opposed to 165 last time.

Looks as though I will have to try a higher power output next time. I think I’ll give it a go at 360 Watts for the hard efforts. How high can I go?
