Max Strength Profile

This is a Cycling pattern from (pattern 15780)

Start out by telling your class this is a strength profile, but they need to work within their personal parameters. So, if they have knee issues, don't take the resistance to a level that will exacerbate that problem. Likewise, if they experience any pain in their knees while doing this profile...take the resistance down.

Cool Down

Remind your class that they WILL be uncomfortable during the climbs but to concentrate on their pedal stroke, relaxation and breathing...not the discomfort. I do some visualizations throughout the ride that are local in nature (climbs I personally know and do), so you can do the same if you're comfortable with that mode of coaching.
