Your 3-Day Best training plan is an eight-week plan built on the foundation of research findings and anecdotal evidence from a 25-year coaching career that indicate shorter duration, high-intensity work, will improve cycling fitness over time. It will also prevent fitness loss when changes in our life's demands, extended periods of inclement weather, or an off-season loom ahead. The plan will train each of your energy systems throughout the week: aerobic, lactate threshold, and VO2. Whether you're a commuter, century rider, aspiring or seasoned racer, these intensity-focused plans will maximize your time on the bike.
The Beginner Plan is intended for riders new to cycling and/or structured training. It will have you riding three and a half to five hours each week.
