Our extensive series on warming up now focuses on the practical matter at hand: creating specific warm-ups for your cycling classes.
Part 1 asked you to consider if you were warming your riders up properly for your rides.
Part 2 looked at the physiological variables.
Part 3 covered the disconnect between perceived exertion and heart rate.
The final three segments put it all together with eleven different warm-ups for thirteen different scenarios. Yes, that includes thirteen actual profiles!
Part 4 delivered four different warm-ups for subthreshold endurance profiles and epic climbs.
This article, part 5, provides four more warm-ups, this time for profiles that include threshold intervals of varying lengths, field tests, and time trials.
Part 6 will provide three more warm-ups for HIIT workouts above threshold, plus a varied loop profile.
