Plan Description

This 12-week Build plan will prepare you for the UCI Gran Fondo World Series, Bike Marathons, and Gran Fondo Stage Racing. It's the continuation of the Advanced Gran Fondo base plan. Again, the plan is divided into three blocks targeting your FTP and VO2max. The middle block embraces block periodization to induce a different training stimulus and be specific to stage races. The weekly structure follows a 3:2 block, meaning you have three days of training, one day of rest, two days of training. If you have around 10 hours to train (8-14 hours), this plan will suit you well.

Studies indicate that a pyramidal into a polarized intensity distribution improves race performance. Your body should be well prepared with a successful base phase completed. Alongside low-intensity training, high-intensity sessions will optimize the training load without the risk of overdoing it.

Skill sessions and strength training will be integrated reasonably. On the other hand, fuelling and recovery guidelines will complement the sessions to provide a broad guideline and maximize performance.

As always, this plan is simple and combines science with results-proven practice. Enjoy!
