This plan is for you if: You have been training in a structured manner for more than a couple of years or are capable of averaging more than 500 TSS points per week (you might be training 6 days per week). It is not specific to any one discipline so will be applicable for those who aren't sure on what their goals will be or if you just want to be faster, stronger and better!

COMPLIMENTARY Support Group access, both nutrition and training! PLUS $25.00 OFF your next plan, when you complete a short survey!

PLEASE NOTE: this plan is now out-of-date and is reflected in the pricing. While all features listed below still work, some of the links in the sessions might not and some of the newer TrainingPeaks features are unavailable. This plan has been updated and can be found in the TP store (email if you can't find it). If you experience issues with missing links, you should be able to find the blog or resource here -> https://spokes.fit/blog/. If you are having trouble with the core session link, please use the paper based plan attached in the notes under day one.

This plan is the most comprehensive and user-friendly plan on the market! Only plans from Direct Power Coaching come with support. We win when you do so buy this plan and will support you by providing you a free guide to download in day one and if you do have any questions you can email info@directpowercoaching.com and we will respond within 48 hours.

You can use any method to monitor your training, power, heart rate or rate of perceived exertion, although power is an advantage. You get key rides to ensure you are capable across every aspect of cycling; nutrition, hydration, technique, tactics and of course performance. Truly personal coaching without the expense of working with a coach 1:1.

95% of the sessions you will do come with comprehensive instructions, links to videos, blogs or downloads, plus they have the workout builder function and can be directly uploaded to Garmin too complete!

This plan has four midweek sessions (usually hour max, including core/leg strength sessions), two weekend sessions (usually this is one longer & one easy/short plus core), the Sunday bike session can be dropped if you need to catch up on one missed during the week, making it more adaptable by the user). It has no more than 7:53 hours per week training & can be completed with a minimum of heart rate and cadence monitors, a power meter is an advantage for any training plan.
