The objective of this Training Plan is to provide you with a structured framework that will improve your aerobic fitness and get you used to working at a higher level of intensity. If you have recently completed the Traditional plan you will notice that the workouts are much more structured with repeated intervals at a higher intensity. Overall the rides in this plan have a higher Intensity Factor (IF) compared to the Traditional plan.
This plan utilizes Sweet Spot based intervals, Sweet Spot is defined as 84-97% of your FTP. Sweet Spot is a time efficient way to increase your CTL. The intensity of these rides is not so high that you need to significantly invest in your recovery however we have also included some stretching and yoga workouts that you can utilize as part of your recovery protocol. The more you can invest in your Recovery the better you will feel!
