HIIT has increased in popularity in recent years because it’s been shown to bring great fitness benefits in terms of cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, and metabolic adaptations - even for endurance athletes. One theory is that it increases muscle recruitment through improved neuromuscular signalling. High intensity intervals won’t substitute for solid aerobic base training, but they will complement it.

It’s really important to warm up well for this session. The clue is in the name: the intervals are intense! If you’re not warmed up enough to put out a really huge effort, you won’t train effectively. And you risk injury. So make sure you ride for at least 10 minutes before starting, and ramp up to an effort level of 8 or 9 out of 10 at least briefly, so your body is ready for what’s coming.
