Plan Description

Human Vortex Training Menachem BrodieDesigned by exercise scientist, expert coach and athlete Menachem Brodie, BS, CSCS this program brings you his knowledge, experience, and expertise from coaching endurance athletes from around the globe the last 9+ years.

Climb like you want to!
Cycling can be incredibly rewarding, and yet frustrating at the same time, especially when the group pulls away from you when the road tilts up....Having been there myself, and having had to learn quickly how to close that gap in my fitness, this plan offers Beginner riders, whom have been riding consistently 6-10 hours a week for the last 2-3 months an accelerated plan to get you back to the group, and even to the front! This plan has been proven time and again, to significantly boost climbing abilities for riders of all abilities, and backgrounds.

What does it mean "Longer time at Threshold Focus?"
This plan is focused on those who are pretty good climbers, but only if the climbs are less than 5-8 minutes in length. This program is focused on increasing your ability to maintain Threshold power for prolonged climbs.

But I have limited time to train!
This plan is built especially for those athletes who work full-time, and who need mid-week workouts less than 75 minutes in length (only 3 workouts are 70-75 min mid-week), with 2 weekend rides between 1.5-2.5 hours in length (1 weekend ride is 2.5 hours).

Mondays- Recovery Ride (except last week)
Wednesday & Fridays- OFF

Take it from someone who has been where you are, and is now an Expert Coach!This plan not only gives you the proven methods of a USA Cycling Expert Coach with International experience, but also from someone who was exactly where you are, and knows exactly what you need to see that YOU have fantastic climbing abilities within yourself!

What are you waiting for- your climbing legs await you!
