Plan Description

This 3 month plan is for a range of athletes who would like to be ready to mountain bike in a few months but who are new to mountain biking or are coming back after injury, illness or time off.

Ideally you will have frequent access to trails, a bike park (or field/backyard) and an mtb that is suitable for climbs, descending and skill work. Road bike/cross bike is helpful but not required.

Strength work is easily done in the house with what you have but extra gear, including dumbells will help

Nutrition guidelines are provided

plan is built into 3 phases
- skill/routine building resist the urge to stack on volume, intensity or frequency too soon.
- volume building
- intensity building

The Plan culminates with a goal of an epic weekend in week #11 or #12 with big climbing in a 3-4 hr ride (or two!)
