Every ride profile you create should have purpose and precision. Learn why recovery is as important as hard work and how often you should push the limits. Take out the guesswork by establishing lactate threshold heart rate (LTHR) using a simple 8-minute test that can be easily executed in class (and utilized immediately!). Create a fun and challenging ride that teaches your riders the value of training smart—all based on their individual LTHR zones. Perfect for all fitness levels. (Heart rate straps provided.)
