Plan Description

This is a fantastic plan to help you build up your endurance. This plan works great pre-season or even in-season while preparing for an endurance event.

This plan will not crush you or drive you in to the ground. You will instead be challenged with regular endurance riding and appropriate interval sessions. The at-home strength workouts include video guidance and then we finish up with some very short plyometric sessions to help with muscle recruitment. All bike workouts have downloadable smart trainer files, which work even if you don't have a smart trainer as these offer a good workout description or can be used with your power meter.

Once you finish this plan, you will be in a very good position to pick up with the 4-week MTB block and 2 week taper in to your event.

This plan is recommended for intermediate enduro, XC and endurance racers.
