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 coach Andrew Dollar of Nashville-based FTP coaching (Ftpcoaching.com). “This workout will test an athlete’s ability to moderate effort earlier in a workout or race in order to build intensity through fatigue and hit targets toward the end,” Dollar says. “The ability to moderate effort is very important in all race distances as most people start out too fast.”
