Every Tuesday we’ll feature a different coach’s workout you can complete in 60 minutes (or less!).
This week’s bike workout comes from Heather Gill, a coach at Energy Lab, a power cycling studio in Atlanta. “This workout is a good mix of strength work and speedwork,” she says. “Intervals after a climbing set can make you feel like you are riding through mud, but they make you strong in the long run!”
