In this 8 Week Training Plan I share some 25+ years of racing experience and training knowledge that I have gathered while racing as a professional cyclist and later as a coach to some local and international amateur and professional cyclists.
The training in this plan will result in big improvements in your threshold power and overall strength.
The training plan is designed for men and women road cyclists and triathletes who are serious about becoming stronger, train with a power meter or heart rate monitor, and train on average between 7-9 hours/week. One day per weekend is left open for group rides or rides “on feel”.
The training plan starts with a 20 minute power test to determine your current threshold power. Even if you only train with heart rate, this plan will still work for you. Simply follow the specific heart rate zones and do the alternative session provided on "power testing" days.
Before starting the plan you should have a good level of endurance fitness and be accustomed to training 7-9 hours/week.
This plan is the result of 25 years of professional racing and coaching experience combined with the latest training methods. You will find the training plan highly descriptive and precise, guaranteeing you get the most out of each workout.
Please note you should receive a "Plan Description" PDF with the plan which includes more details and a link to calculate your specific heart rate or power zones. If you do not receive the PDF please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
