Looking to burn off some of your holiday eating and get fit at the same time? This workout is for you. A throwback to a blog post we did last year- The TRUMP workout.
No matter how you voted, how happy or unhappy you are about it, Donald Trump is our new President.
Here at ALP Cycles Coaching, we decided to use this opportunity to create a new workout. Just like President Elect Trump, this workout will take you by surprise, kick some ass, then leave you feeling mentally and physically drained.
We present to you our T.R.U.M.P workout.
R- Race Winning Interval
M- Muscle Tenson Interval
Warm-up for 20-30min and include 4x1min 100+rpm intervals to wake up your legs.
8 minutes at Tempo (zone 3) 95+rpm
2 minutes rest
3:40 minute RWI at VO2 (zone 5)- Start with a 10 second sprint and keep drilling it for 20 more seconds. Then, settle in at VO2 (zone 5) for 3 minutes. Finish with an out of the saddle 10 second sprint like you are sprinting for the finish line of your 'A' race.
3 minutes rest
6 minutes of Under/Overs. For 6 minutes, alternate 1 min at Tempo, 1 minute at VO2.
2 minutes of rest
5 minutes of MTI at Sweet Spot (Zones 3/4)- aim for 60-70rpm. Keep your upper body calm, relaxed, and core tight.
1 minute rest and then get off your bike and
30 seconds of Push-Ups.
Get back on your bike, rest and recover. Still feeling peppy? Then do a second set.
Cool down for 15-20min, foam roll, stretch, and drink recovery drink (we like Breakthrough Nutrition's NBS recovery drink).
