Join Matt and a number of Team Sky riders, including former world champion Michal Kwiatkowski, on an indoor training session to increase your power using cadence drills.

After a 5 minute steady warmup, Matt and the Team Sky riders perform four blocks of cadence drills:

5 minutes at 85% of FTP at a very low cadence, around 45-55rpm
5 minutes at 85% of FTP at a much higher cadence, between 90-100rpm
5 minutes at 85% of FTP at a low cadence again
Final 5 minutes at 85% of FTP again at a high cadence, but with the last 20 seconds ridden as hard as you possibly can!

      Definitely will try the protocol, though not with those Sky on my screen.

      This suffice for training:
      5 minutes at 85% of FTP at a very low cadence, around 45-55rpm
      5 minutes at 85% of FTP at a much higher cadence, between 90-100rpm
      5 minutes at 85% of FTP at a low cadence again
      Final 5 minutes at 85% of FTP again at a high cadence, but with the last 20 seconds ridden as hard as you possibly can!
