Plan Description

Block 3 of 8 in our comprehensive sportive training programme. Our Club Training System is a 44 week training plan delivered in 8 blocks of 4 weeks progressive training, followed by a 12 week maintenance plan. Our system is a proven method of building a deep level of all round cycling fitness and maintaining it throughout the summer period. The plan covers all of the 5 core fitness abilities. Aerobic endurance, muscular endurance, aerobic capacity, anaerobic endurance and neuromuscular power. By improving all 5 of these abilities you will develop a deeper aerobic engine, be able to make sustained hard efforts, have the condition to go into the red and recover, as well as develop some zip and power to respond to quick changes of pace.

This is the only training system we know of that takes you through your season is a highly methodological way, making sure that you not only build your fitness effectively but that you don't lose it after you main event. It is ideal preparation for Sportives, Gran Fondos, Century rides, Club rides and Charity rides or you can use it simply for the pleasure of seeing your performance sky rocket.
