“Indoor training designed to smash your 20 minute record in 6 weeks!
Training plan description: Do you train indoors the majority of the time? Are you looking to improve your threshold with indoor training while keeping your training fresh and exciting with the option to include Zwift races or group rides?
This training plan is designed for indoor training with sessions designed to be fun and highly productive so that you stay mentally fresh and motivated for the entire plan and smash your 20 minute power record at the end of the 6 weeks! An optional power test is scheduled at the start of the plan and again at the end of the 6 weeks to evaluate your improvements.
A Zwift race or group ride can replace 1-2 sessions each week as indicated in the plan. Training sessions are compacted into 1-1.5 hour sessions with the option to extend ride times. The hours each week range between 5-6 hours total for indoors training (with options to extend for outdoor riding).This plan works well if you already have a good level of fitness, are used to doing some higher intensity efforts, and have been training consistently 4+ hours/week.
The training is with Power and is designed in the Workout Builder format which provides your personalized power zones in each training session which are calculated automatically from your Threshold number inputted under settings. Additional benefits of the Workout Builder format include direct training session sync to your Garmin or Wahoo device and Zwift plus upload to many other trainng devices and indoor apps like TrainingRoad, CycleOps and more.
