“Improve your power and increase your leg speed with these fun and challenging sessions!"
This 6 weeks training plan is designed specifically to be used with Zwift and a smart indoor trainer and includes specific instructions programmed into each session. The training plan consists of 5 X indoor cycling sessions each week mostly between 45-90 minutes and the option to do some Zwift group rides. The training can also be performed outdoors. This plan can also be used with TrainingRoad, Garmin, Wahoo and many other training devices. It uses the workout builder format from TrainingPeaks and works with power zones and targets.
Training plan description: The plan builds in power and intensity over the 6 weeks with an initial 3 week build followed by an easier week. The final 2 weeks are challenging and will test you and bring on some big improvements! Don't be surprised if you have gained 20+ watts on your FTP by the end of the plan. Before starting the plan you should have a good level of fitness and be accustomed to training 4+ hours/week consistently.
The training plan is designed with highly specific sessions each day that will keep your mind focused from the beginning to the end of the training session. The specific training sessions scheduled will work best in ERG mode in your Zwift app. Simply download the workout file from your TrainingPeaks account and upload to Zwift (instructions included).
