While I'm on the subject, here's my other favorite cycling drill: cadence.
My normal cycling cadence is between 90-95. For the drill, I cycle at 100 for 3 minutes, 110 for 2 minutes, and 120 for 1 minute. I then spin easy for a 2-3 minutes and repeat.
From doing this drill, spinning at 90-95 seems slow :)
Keep in mind, by me saying the this and ILT are my favorite drills I don't necessarily mean that I actually enjoy doing them. They are not easy. ...with that said, I think they are VERY beneficial and the benefits far outweigh a couple of minutes of fatigue here and there.
