Workout of the Week: 60 minute brick progression

Each week I share a swim, bike, run, plyometric or strength workout from my training. Give it a shot and leave your feedback in the comments.

For efficiency, this workout is best done using a bike trainer and treadmill, but can easily be done outside with the right conditions.

Try this 60-minute, brick session to improve turnover and your leg muscles’ ability to more efficiently transition from bike to run.
