Length

8 Weeks

Plan Description

This is an 8-week Enduro prep plan with 2 days in the gym and 2 specific bike sessions using a polarized approach, separated into two blocks. The gym sessions are highly dynamic, and this would suit a rider with some experience strength training. [If you lack experience strength training, repeat the first session for the first 4 weeks]. This plan has specific race prep sessions, such as our popular coasting v pedaling race session. On-the-bike workouts are varied, and aim to stress the energy systems you need to improve aerobically and anaerobically.

When you finish this plan you will have a strong base of fitness to be ready for the trails. You can lead right in to a race block or continue building.

Needed for this plan: standard gym membership, heart rate monitor/recording device, free (or greater) TP membership.

This specific plan is heart rate-based, but we have a power version available.
