Theme Ride Thursday: It’s Rocktober…Time to Cue Up the Three-Peat Rock ‘n’ Roll Profile!

I have provided two versions for coaching this high-intensity interval profile. One is with power (watts) and the other is with perceived exertion, for when you don’t have power meters.

The benefits will have them chomping at the bit to do more of these types of profiles more often!

This profile and playlist are on fire! I originally created this ride for the Tokyo Olympics and refer to Olympic athletes throughout, but it doesn’t have to be a profile you use just during the Olympics. Use it anytime you want a motivational, empowering ride. It makes a great “master class” for a special event.
