Plan Description

Coach Pav

This plan is the latest version using all the latest TrainingPeaks features, current for 2021/22 and has been designed by me, Pav Bryan (coachpav.com) Amazon #1 New Release Author, BikesEtc Magazine’s 'Cycling Guru' and 'King of Endurance'.

Only my premium ("NEW!!") plans come with a free user guide (with new links to blog resources - sorry the links within each session no longer work) 40-week strength and conditioning plan (downloadable in session one on the calendar) and email support! If you have any problem completing your plan or have to deviate for any reason – I will personally recommend a solution within 24 hours.

This plan is for you if you are targeting track racing this year and are comfortable training above 500 TSS points per week, this might mean you are UK Cat 1 (US 2). This would suit 'Sprint' track racing, such as; Individual pursuit, Sprint, Team Sprint, Keirin & Track time trial, plus any others that are not classed as Endurance events.

You might consider opting for heavy weight training at the start of this plan (indicated by the core sessions - simply swap them out), at around 8 weeks prior to your target event, switch to lower weights and perform the exercises explosively to build power. In the week or two prior to your key events, consider slowing down your movement of weight training, so it is more maintenance.

Where double sessions exist, do the bike session as early in the morning as possible and the weight/core session as late as possible in the afternoon.

Once you have completed this plan you will be ready to start your taper into your main event. It would be advantageous for you to add some practice events during the final two phases. When/if doing so, please replace the most similar session during the week.

This plan presumes that you have been riding consistently for at least 4 weeks (ideally 8), if you haven't, you should check out our Preparation Phase plans before starting this. This also includes 4 (ideally 8) weeks of strength preparation training (low weight, high reps, performed slowly, form being key). If you have not done this, take the first 4 weeks of this plan as that, then move on.

This plan is totally compatible (upload-able/exportable) with all good platforms including Zwift, TrainerRoad, The Sufferfest and many more.

You can use any method to monitor your training, power, cadence, heart rate or rate of perceived exertion, although power is an advantage. You get key rides and further resources (links within the sessions on the calendar) to ensure you are capable across every aspect of cycling; nutrition, hydration, technique, tactics and of course performance.

All the sessions you will do come with comprehensive instructions, links to videos, blogs or downloads, plus they have the workout builder function; full power, heart rate and cadence targets (where applicable).

Please note that my "NEW!!" plans don't come with a taper before any events (if applicable). This is mainly because most athletes have their own taper specific to them and less taper weeks means more training weeks! Feel free to get in contact if you need help with your taper, but remember to time to end of this plan so there is a gap between it and your event.

If you are using heart rate or RPE and would like a plan tailored to this, please visit coachpav.com for info on bespoke plans.
