    I do my 1 min's as "the fastest I can possibly go" so if that means out of saddle, then do it out of the saddle.

    it doesn't really matter, standing watts are the same as sitting watts.

    what does matter is, if you're using the interval to establish a 1 min marker you need to always do them the same way and preferably, the same place.

    If it's just 10 x 1s I say do'em however you need to do them.

    But can you do 10 of them without fading at the end?

    That is the idea. I usually start out the first 15s standing and sit the rest and make sure of repeatability for the whole set.

    10 x 1-min intervals in a workout?

    Sounds to me like someone isn't doing them hard enough.
