This is the second installment of my mountain bike pre season training plan for intermediate to expert level. This will get you up to race shape but not peak form.
Workouts are specially designed to be possible to completed indoors with a smart trainer or traditional trainer and max out at 2 hrs.
Requirements 6-8 weeks of Base training with at least 1 hour a week at zone 3 (tss of 400-500)
To get the most out of every workout a power meter on your bike is helpful but not required but a heart rate monitor is needed at the least. 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.
Decades of personal experience from racing all over the World have come together to make a great training plan!
I hope you love it!
