       Training must be regular. How many sessions can you undertake per week? Research shows there must be at least four quality sessions per week.

       The sessions must be of measured intensity using heart rate, pedal cadence and speed.

       The sessions should be specific to time trialling.

       Adequate time must be allowed for recovery between sessions.

Progressive Development
