Got gravel on the brain? We’ll help you train! Our Gravel Grinder Training Plan will help you prepare to go long & strong over every climb and gravel section the race can throw at you. Choose between a basic, intermediate or advanced training plan based on the amount of time you have to train per week, your age and you ability level.
This periodized plan will have you progressing your riding time and intensity as you near race day. You’ll start with a Field Test will set your training zones with the included FasCat Wattage and Heart Rate Zones Sheet. Then you’ll ride race simulations on the weekends leading into the race so you can make sure your legs & bike are ready! There’s even tips on nutrition & hydration that you can practice on these simulation rides!
Additionally, this training plan includes all the “marginal gains” details to get even faster: Recovery Techniques, Rest Days, Yoga, Foundations, and best of all, Strength and Conditioning – all you need is a physical therapy style rubber band and MOTIVATION! There are instructional videos in the plan for you to follow along at home. You’ll perform structured Sweet Spot and Tempo intervals mid-week and have the option to join group rides on the weekends (where we coach you how to sweet spot on the group ride). There’s also recommendations for riding longer/shorter for flexibility so you can stay on track when life throws a curve ball.
