Plan Description

The Smart Athlete Transition/Off-Season Block is a short plan meant to take you from your off-season to your base phase. Not all athletes require this phase but many athletes will benefit from this type of training after a hard season of racing and training.

This 5-week block (4 weeks training + 1 week getting started/recovery) helps you maintain your fitness while easing back into training and letting your body recover from a hard racing period.

Resist the urge to stack on volume, intensity or frequency too soon.

Go through the motions and arrive at the end of this block ready for your Base Phase.

Includes Anatomical Adaptation Strength phase with 2 unique weekly workouts.
