First part of turbo session until PC died.https://www.trainerroad.com/career/garydavies44/ri...
Taylor -2 is made up of 3x14-minute sets of 30-second VO2max repeats at 120% FTP where you'll complete as many as 14 short intervals per set.
The recovery intervals match the work intervals with 30 seconds of easy spinning and the breaks between sets are 5 minutes long.
VO2max repeats look to improve maximum aerobic capacity (power that relies on oxgyen to produce energy more efficiently) by pinpointing repeatable 30-second power to heftily stress the aerobic capabilities in order to improve them.
Equal recovery following each repetition within the sets keeps aerobic uptake high meaning that each subsequent effort will start at a higher percentage of oxygen uptake and yield even more time at or near peak aerobic power.
Put another way, this workout affords an opportunity to accumulate up to 36 minutes near peak aerobic output in order to improve your power at VO2max and maybe even VO2max itself.
Try to keep your cadence above 100rpm during every interval, but if fatigue forces a lack of control at higher cadences then shoot for a spin closer to 90rpm and ride smoothly.

I deliberately back pedalled through some of the valleys to enable me to complete the 1hr workout.
