This Threshold DVD serves two purposes: It's a great threshold building workout designed to boost your anaerobic threshold and sustainable power output for time trialing events including triathlons.

By learning one's functional threshold and retesting it every 6-8 weeks, an athlete can accurately determine the proper training zones as well as assess their training progress over time. This form of performance testing is critical for anyone interested in getting faster on the bike and achieving optimal results through a structured training program.
