This plan is designed with the unique terrain and courses we have in Virginia in mind.
This VORS training plan is for intermediate racers all the way up to the top expert. However, you do not need to be an expert to successfully complete this plan but you will training like one!
We also know that lives are busy and days are full; with that in mind you will see that midweek workouts are specially designed to be possible to completed indoors with a smart trainer or traditional trainer and max out at 2 hrs.
What do I need to do to get the most out of this plan? 3 weeks of light base training 5-8 hrs a week.
To get the most out of every workout a power meter on your bike is helpful but not required. Minimally a heart rate strap and bike computer will be needed to track your progress through the VORS plan. Also, a smart trainer for indoor trainer rides really helps you target specific zones and rpms to make those gains!
The plan includes strength conditioning; cross training and core workouts for specific performance benefits that mountain bike athletes need. Custom and fun bike workouts keep the training fresh, while building the important rock-solid foundation of fitness you'll need for a great season.
This training plan does not require but could benefit from having access to a gym. Yoga is not incorporated in this plan. If you practice yoga, substitute out the short core workouts for your existing practice is great.
Consultation and customization of this plan is available at additional cost.
We have used our decades of personal experience from racing all over Virginia
to design this custom plan and we think you will love it.
