Plan Description

This plan has been designed by Pav Bryan Bikes Etc Magazines Cycling Guru. Director and Head Coach at Direct Power Coaching and Nutritionally Fit. Team Manager at Direct Power Cycling Team. Pioneer of Truly Personal Coaching and Truly Personal Nutrition. Full info:

Have you got an event coming up which will be in hotter temperatures than you can train in? Do you consider yourself to be a 'highly trained' athlete, where 500 TSS points per week is the minimum you train at? This plan is for you! This is to compliment your existing regime not to replace. Add this to your current program. It is part of the wider; Hot Weather Package, brought to you by DPC.

Purchase this plan and get a 20% discount voucher for use off a Spruzza device, the perfect accompaniment to any Hot Weather Plan!

PLEASE NOTE: this plan is now out-of-date and is reflected in the pricing. While all features listed below still work, some of the links in the sessions might not and some of the newer TrainingPeaks features are unavailable. This plan has been updated and can be found in the TP store (email if you can't find it). If you experience issues with missing links, you should be able to find the blog or resource here -> If you are having trouble with the core session link, please use the paper based plan attached in the notes under day one.

Studies show that you can force an adaptation to heat, even when no outside heat exists, by replicating similar temperatures in indoor training. This advanced plan gives you the sessions you need to force said adaptation. It is a five week long plan. To ensure you get the best from this, you should finish the last session as close to the point when you arrive in the hot conditions as possible. It is important to add this to your existing training and not to replace anything.

This plan will ask you to increase the temperature of your training area to around 38c or 100f. A smaller training area is more ideal for this. If you begin to feel ill during any of the acclimation sessions, slow down or stop.

This plan is the most comprehensive and user-friendly plan on the market! Only plans from Direct Power Coaching come with support. We win when you do so buy this plan and will support you by providing you a free guide to download in day one and if you do have any questions you can email and we will respond within 48 hours.

You can use any method to monitor your training, power, heart rate or rate of perceived exertion, although power is an advantage. You get key rides to ensure you are capable across every aspect of cycling; nutrition, hydration, technique, tactics and of course performance. Truly personal coaching without the expense of working with a coach 1:1.

95% of the sessions you will do come with comprehensive instructions, links to videos, blogs or downloads, plus they have the workout builder function and can be directly uploaded to Garmin too complete!
