Plan Description

The Power Boost plan is designed for the beginner/intermediate level triathlete or cyclist that desires to increase their overall bike power. This 8 week program emphasizes “quality over quantity” for the busy athlete. Weekday workouts last one hour so you can maximize results and then get back to life. There are four workouts a week that are intensity focused, including threshold, tempo, progressive tempo and progressive endurance sessions. A recovery week is included at the end of each 4 week block to allow your body to absorb and recover from all the hard work. Each workout is highly structured as you progress through a gradual warm-up, intervals/main set and then into a cool down. Prior to using this plan, you should be able to comfortably ride a cumulative total of three hours per week.

This plan works best using a power meter. It is also compatible with Zwift which can add a little more fun in the virtual world. It is perfect for an early season primer to build a stronger bike or get you peaked for your in season “A” races. A Functional Threshold Power (FTP) test is conducted at the start and end of the plan so you can gauge and celebrate all your hard earned progress.

This plan is designed by Endurance Lifestyle Group coach Barry Baird and embodies his passion and philosophy of quality workouts to get big results while maintaining a balanced life outside of training.
