4 Week Block for XC or Enduro Racers. Heart Rate + Trail Optimized
MTB PhDAll plans by this Coach
For many mountain bikers, training is a bit of a mystery. And a lot of us have the same kinds of questions for training.
What weaknesses should I be addressing in my fitness training? How should a typical week look? How many weeks in a row should I do this? When should I rest? Should I be training different for Enduro than for XC?
This plan is one 4-week block that addresses all of these questions, no matter what level you are at. These are the same kinds of workouts that I use with professional and beginner athletes.
First, you will test your fitness. The plan then goes on through 3 full weeks of training. The plan finishes with a structured recovery week and a post-training fitness test.
This particular plan is optimized for training with heart rate. You can also use your power meter.
This plan also allows for FUN MOUNTAIN BIKE RIDES -- because training should be fun!
The workouts are well-suited for both XC and Enduro racers, with the main difference being the race simulation days.
