WE

Written by Cody Waite, of Waite Endurance

NEW for 2019 is our most condensed 12-week Base Builder Training Plan for Low Volume athletes. Complete with our updated Trainer Series Program & ALL NEW Strength Progression Program.

You're looking at THREE MONTHS of progressive training to build your complete fitness base through the off-season. Build your Base in just 12 weeks with our shortest time span for those that don't have the time or interest in an 18 or 24 week base build. Our Low Volume program revolves around the following:

  • 3x Structured Cycling Sessions per week

  • 1x Optional Endurance Ride per week

  • 2x Progressive Strength Training Sessions per week

  • 1-2x Rest Day per week

  • 4-8 Hours of Training per Week (can increase as desired)

  • Recovery/Testing weeks built into the Program

  • All workouts are "Structured" & "Device" compatible; can be performed indoors or out

  • Metrics Used: Power, HR, and/or RPE

Our 'off-season' Base Builder plans are ideal for any cyclist, mountain biker, or triathlete looking to improve their strength & power on the bike across any distance. Click Links Below to Learn More:
