turbo 1

WTC / WSJCC turbo training starts Tuesday 31st October 7pm at the University running 8 weeks up to Xmas. £30 for the block or £5 on the night.
To sign-up email bikebitsa18@yahoo.co.uk.

Turbo training keeps legs turning and lungs working over the winter months whilst improving technique, endurance, strength and lactate tolerance before the start of the race season. Sessions last 60 – 75 minutes and typically comprise of a 15 minute warmup, some drills and technique work, a main set of specific efforts and a cool-down. These are not spinning sessions but a progressive programme aimed at time trials and road racing with a Sufferfest video every couple of months.
The MPC lab in Thomas Telford building is a roomy, air-conditioned hall perfect for this sort of training. Showers are available in the nearby sports hall. From the car park outside bikes and kit can be brought in through the large firedoors at the rear of the building. Note there is now a £1 charge for parking at the University.

Turbo training is a great way of keeping legs turning and lungs working over the winter months. whilst improving technique, endurance, strength and lactate tolerance before the start of the race season. Sessions last 60 – 75 minutes and typically comprise of a structured 15 minute warmup, some drills and technique work, two main sets of specific efforts and a cool-down. These are not spinning sessions but a progressive programme aimed at time trials and road racing with a Sufferfest video every couple of months. Since you ride at your own pace, its easy to accommodate riders of all ages and abilities. No one is left behind!
