“Training for excellence, with excellent training.”
This is a great training plan to build your cycling fitness over 8 weeks.
Whether you are a road cyclist, mountain biker, Zwift or Pelaton user or wanting to use a spin bike for general fitness.
Designed for Beginner and Intermediate Cyclists who are looking to lift their fitness, the primary goal of this training plan is to build your fitness.
Crafted by myself, Ray Boardman PGDipSportsMed, PGDipRehab, PGCertSc (Exercise Science), BSc (Anatomy), DipSportsStudies this plan encapsulates my passion for the sport, my experience from completing dozens of Half and Full IRON-distance finishes and my success coaching hundreds of triathletes.
A Power Meter will be required for this training plan. Although not necessary, I also recommend using a heart rate monitor.
Prior to using this plan, you should be comfortable riding for more than 60 minutes and want a plan with three rides per week.
Purchase of this plan gives you access to my fortnightly coaching calls where you can ask me any training or racing related questions.
Training for another race distance? I also have training plans for IRON-distance Triathlons (3.8km Swim/180km Bike/42km Run) and Sprint & Olympic Triathlons plus Running Races (from 5k to marathon), too.
