Stop getting dropped on the flats/rollers! Beginner to Intermediate Plan for Stronger Riding
Menachem BrodieAll plans by this Coach
Designed 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. Getting dropped on the flats? Over the last nearly 10 years of coaching, I've helped quite a few riders who were excellent climbers, to stop from struggling to keep up with the group on the flats/rollers. Surprisingly, there are very few training programs out there that offer riders the training necessary to ride strong across the board.
Getting dropped on a ride can be incredibly frustrating (I've been there myself!), and can really take some of the fun out of riding. But it doesn't have to be that way!
What does this program include?
This program is built with the full-time working rider in mind, as all of the mid-week rides are 75 minutes or less. Weekend rides are written for 2.5-3 hours in length, although you can extend them up to 4.5 hours if your current fitness and riding capabilities allow. If you are unsure, stick with the prescribed workout times through week 3, and then decide if you can add more ride time.
How many days a week does this program require?
This program is built as a 5-day a week riding program.
Wednesday and Fridays are OFF.
