“Wow. I damn near went anaerobic on that last undulating micro burst once that supra-threshold interval started playing footsies with my vo2 max. If that next hill took me above threshold I would have been cooked but good thing I’m a dentist and my bike weighs in at 13 kilos. Watt is your ftp anyway bro?”
I think something like this could further seperate me from my buddies that don’t use TR out on the road.
Is there or can the TR gals and guys create a page or sticky in the forum that is a ‘glossary of terms’? No idea if this would be 10 terms or 100. But it would be nice to see them all in one place. Something like this probably already exists on the web. Coach Chad does a great job of defining the focus of each plan as well as each individual workout with terms like ‘threshold’, ‘strength endurance’, ‘dentist’, ‘aerobic ceiling’, ‘sweet spot’, ‘tempo’, etc but they are never seen in relation to one another.
suprathreshold - below vo2 max but above ftp. the goal of a suprathreshold workout is to extend high power over greater duration.
Now that I dig around this looks like it would be a daunting task but a lot of them need no explanation like ‘micro-burst’.
