This is an evidence-based training plan for a six-week mesocycle. It is most appropriate for beginner and intermediate cyclists who are cycling 4-6 h per week, but can also be helpful for more advanced athletes who are pressed for time and require shorter, high-quality workouts that will produce results.
The aim is to improve fatigue resistance and improve time trialing performance by helping you maintain your power output. The target intensity is 90% of your HRmax and the interval duration is four minutes. It is preceded by one week of threshold testing and readiness workouts, and followed by a short taper and post-testing.
