Sprint interval training can be done in a few different ways. Here you’ve got some of the most used by many cyclists.
Best Way For Doing Sprint Interval Training:
One of the best ways can be a little difficult for most of us. To do this, you need a friend with a scooter or motorbike to help you get the speed and to emulate sprinting past another rider. You will need a flat road that doesn’t have much or any traffic.
Your friend needs to take the speed up to just below your max speed so that you can sprint past him at designated points. When you have finished your sprint the moto shouldn’t slow too much, and then you have to make another effort to regain the back wheel of the motorbike again.
Without the help of a motorbike, you can also train with a friend. Take turns being the “lead-out man” and the other sprinting past. The disadvantage with this method is that as you both get tired. The speed drops. This shouldn’t be a problem with a scooter or motorbike so the speed stays as high as you can keep it up.
Group Sprint Interval Training:
Sprint training from a group is also great but does add other problems of organization and safety. A group needs more room on the road if you can find a closed circuit with a safe sprint straight.
This would be ideal to have a fast training session with a sprint at the end of every lap. Be careful not to get too enthusiastic and switch each other all over the road. An industrial center after everyone has gone home is perfect as long as there is not a security operative on duty.
