Improve Your 4 Minute Power - A Helpful Benchmark for a Breakthrough Season.
As we enter the off-season, most most successful triathletes will tell you there really is no official off season. Rather, it's a shift in what you focus on in training. Today we will be looking at how you can benefit from improving your 4 minute power.
Keep in mind, this does not mean we are doing interval after interval during the winter months. Many of our high intensity intervals are balanced with a good dose of aerobic work.
The 4 minute power test is an excellent benchmark test you can easily add to your regular training.
How you target improvements in your 4 minute power will depend on the strength of your aerobic and anaerobic capacity.
A focus on 4 minute power will not necessarily make you race ready, but that's okay at this point in the season. Your next step once you improve your 4 minute power is to translate that into your race specific development .
