Doug Rusho - 2010 Instructor of the year - is back with another Audio PROfile for our ICI/PRO members to enjoy.
Tabata Power Play is designed to allow anyone to experience the incredible world of power training without prior FTP testing and subsequent power zone calculations. It is certainly not the ideal way to use power; however it is an effective method to introduce the concept, advantages, and the experience of riding with power.
This profile is considered high intensity, which may seem odd since it is an “introduction” to power, but in reality the application of power feedback is most useful for shorter, work interval lengths. It will also turn light bulbs on for your students, and they will get very excited about taking power training to the next level, including formal FTP testing and personal power zones. For this ride you can leave your HR monitor at home, due to the short work intervals. Allow your students to focus on one thing, watts.

This looks *really* fun!
Is the Tune Map on the PROfile pdf, or somewhere else? I wasn’t seeing it.
Shari I forgot to add that link. Here it is http://icipromedia.s3.amazonaws.com/Tabata_Power_Play_Tunemap.pdf
Thank you John!
Great profile! Can’t wait to teach this one. Thank you Doug!
Looks like a great profile if you have bikes that read power. Suggestions for this profile if you do not. Thanks, Julie Zweck-Bronner
Julie, at the end of the audio portion of this profile I have suggestions for bikes without power.
Thank You John for posting this… it answered a lot of questions I had in regards to this sort of training in my class.
You can use workoutmuse an app in iTunes to set your parameters for the tabata and click on a playlist that you have to go with it. The “man” cues the intervals.
