Sample Day 1

1:30:00
Fitness Test and Field Testing

Perform a 20 minute test or complete a field test to determine your current level of fitness. Please download the attachment for all of the details on how to do this.

Sample Day 3

1:00:00
Tempo Climbs

1 x Tempo Climbs with 6 minutes rest between intervals focusing on Drop Offs
Improve your sustainable power and your ability to ride long uphill trails. These tempo efforts will mean you begin to push towards your lactate threshold and into an anaerobic effort. They might sting the legs a little.
Recover between efforts and ride the rest of the duration of the ride at zone 2

Sample Day 5

1:00:00
Trail Endurance

As a mountain biker your aerobic endurance is important. You can ride your favourite trails for longer, and if you’re a racer you can ride faster and recover more quickly. Get out there and make your rides count. Even shorter sprint disciplines like Downhill rely on aerobic endurance for riders to remain calm and think straight deep into their run. You’ll also find that with a bigger aerobic engine, your recovery between harder efforts like climbs will shorten and you’ll feel better, fresher and lively on the trail.
During the session try to includeTechnical Climbing and download the Dirt School Mountain Bike Skills App for tips.

Sample Day 8

1:00:00
Spin It Up

6 x spin ups with 5 min rest between intervals focusing on Body Position. Work on your high speed pedalling technique. Learn to pedal faster so you can ride faster! A great work out for legs, lungs and to develop high leg speed important for riding on fast trails and downhills.
