This 8 week training plan is made for cyclists or triathletes who train with power, heart rate, or perceived exertion. We have provided an eBook on the first day of the plan that contains testing protocol and explains how to set your training zones within TrainingPeaks. That will allow you to know exactly where you are starting with the plan and provide the correct information for testing in the future.
This plan is made to improve your VO2 Max and get you to the next level of fitness. If you are at a plateau in your fitness then this is the plan for you to bust that glass ceiling and to the next highest threshold.
This plan is VO2 Max intensive for a reason; prepare yourself for the intensity on a regular basis. I have blended the VO2 Max work with solid amounts of FTP work so that you'll continue to improve there as well.
Stuck in a rut? Get this plan. It is built using the latest in power training principles and these are the workouts that I prescribe to my personal athletes. It is built on percentages so that no matter what your threshold power is you'll be able to use this plan.
Go for it! I know you'll love it!
