High Impact Cycling Workout #6 – Tempo Ride

      Greetings – the first five High Impact Cycling Workouts I posted were relatively low intensity sessions.  Your average heart rate during these workouts will be in Zone 1 or 2, and you should never go above Zone 3 at any point during these sessions.  Today’s workout, the Tempo Ride, is the first one that will take you into Zone 3 for extended periods of time.  This is the most difficult workout I have described thus far.  At times, you will be breathing hard enough to make it difficult to talk.  In addition to aerobic endurance, Tempo Rides will also increase your muscular endurance (your ability to pedal bigger gears for longer periods of time).  Click below to download the workout.  Just keep spinning!
