10 Minute Progress Check

Training Guide > Cycling Tests > 10 Minute Progress Check

This test is a progress check of aerobic capacity using the result of your 3 minute aerobic test to set the sub maximal level. It has the advantage of being less fatiguing than a maximal test and has a short recovery period.

Regular progress checks are useful in tracking the effectiveness of your training plan. The training plans recommend “progress checkpoints”. Improvement is indicated by a progressively reducing heart rate for the same cadence/power output.
