This is a year long training plan for the beginner mountain bike rider.
This plan gives you 3-4 workouts per week and that allows you to choose based on your lifestyle.
The workouts get harder throughout the year in order to take advantage of your improvements as you go! Skills drills, weight training and focused structure will give you more fitness than before.
This training plan is made for mountain bikers who train with power, heart rate, or perceived exertion. We have provided an additional week at the beginning of this 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.
Go for it and I know you'll really love this plan!
