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.

You want climbing Strength? YOU GOT IT!
As we first begin riding our bikes, we tend to develop a love/hate relationship with climbing: We love when we get to the top and get that incredible feeling of having conquered the climb, but hate looking ahead and seeing the road wind to the sky, seemingly endlessly. This training program is built especially for beginners who are looking to unlock their REALY climbing abilities, so they can ride strong and fast, no matter what the terrain.

Get stronger riding 4 days a week!
This program is designed for those who have life commitments that allow them to ride 2 weekdays for 60-75 minutes, and 2.5-3.5 hours on the weekends. The program is specifically designed to allow you to move the mid-week workouts around as you need, so long as the rides are done in the same order that they are programmed.

What if I can't ride both weekend days?
No problem! The weekend rides can be done one weekday, and one weekend day, again, so long as the order of the rides is maintained. This makes it easy to adjust for any curveballs that life may throw you!

What are the basic requirements before I start this program?
This plan is designed for beginners who have been riding a minimum of 4 hours a week. If you've never used a training plan before, this is a great plan to learn about a structured training approach, and how it can help you progress as a rider!
