A Solid Start to an Unbreakable Fitness Base - Next Season Begins Now!
ZWIFT® is a great platform to use with this plan.
This plan is designed for a rider to build an unstoppable fitness base. After a long season of racing and training, this plan is the perfect next step in building a solid foundation for the coming race season. Don't slack off now and be starting over in Spring. Build upon your 2020 fitness and actually improve over the next 4 weeks, and come out ready to tweak your race fitness. You will be far ahead of the competition.
The plan is built by USA Cycling Level 1 Coach and Cat II road cyclist Paul Ozier. Paul is an Elite Coach at Peaks Coaching Group. Paul has over 25 years of racing experience and more than 15 years as a cycling coach. Athletes coached by Paul have excelled to new levels, set personal bests, won races for their first time, and taken home Silver and Gold medals in state championships.
This is a 4 week plan (This is weeks 1 through 4 of the full 12 week plan). Typically in the past a lot of riders would slog away for hours at zone 1 and 2 through the Winter. This plan is different and will take an already fit rider through some base work of various levels, touching on workouts you never experienced in your base fitness months. This plan includes not only zones 1 and 2, but we hit on zones 3 and 4 regularly. The intensity is not body crushing or overloading, but it is work that will have you strong and solid as you approach Spring. The higher intensity race prep intervals will be supported by a huge aerobic base, a strength that gives you confidence, but did not fatigue you over and over through the base period. Train smart for the next 4 weeks with this plan, then move on to weeks 5 through 12. Then show your competition the new you this coming 2021 season.
