Plan Description

With this 8-week plan, we'll focus on boosting the time and power you're able to ride at VO2 max. Why should you want to do this you ask? By raising these variables, you'll increase the space between power at VO2 max and FTP, thus giving you an opportunity to focus on raising your FTP once you've completed this plan. This plan is best for any cyclist or triathlete looking to work hard and get faster. This plan can be utilized indoors or out and focuses primarily on power and RPE to guide you through the plan. The methods used in this plan have helped all of Coach Steve's athletes become some of the strongest and fastest riders in the age group triathlon ranks. Once you've started this plan, feel free to email Steve with any questions that you may have along the way!
