Lose weight, gain free speed and stay injury free with this plan. It perfect for the final 12 weeks prior to a race after a decent amount of base training has already been established.
The Plan "12 Week Peak" was compiled by All American, Master Trainer, USAT, and TrainingPeaks Coach in Boulder Colorado, Austin Mitchell. This periodized, and primarily duration based plan touches all the training basis such as time, intensity, type, frequency recovery and nutrition. This training plan was compiled over three years as Austin personally researched and tested various workout from many resources. There are several "secret" workouts included that have evolved from world class coaches and several others world class athletes and coaches that austin has learned from. This Plan is very unique for intermediate and advanced triathletes because after completing one "12 Week Peak" cycle, the athlete can increase difficulty level by increasing duration of all workouts by approximately 10%. This plan is primarily use for Olympic distance and Half Ironman events. Doubling the total volume in this plan allows athletes to use the plan for a Full Distance triathlon such as IRONMAN, REV3, Challenge and so on. This allows the athlete to use this training Program and the extremely effective workouts (and recovery techniques) throughout the year without a plateau in fitness or injury.
