Just how strong, fast and epic can you be!? Good news, we have created a training plan to find out the answer.

This plan will focus on the big 3 elements of successful all-around cycling performance: endurance, climbing and power at threshold/FTP. We encourage you to use this plan after a successful build period as you start to pursue your top form

Sample Day 2
1:15:00
48.4TSS
Small ring ride with spikes every 6 minutes (power)

In your small ring get a good 15-20 minute warm-up in then do the following:
Every 6 minutes do one minute at an 100-110% of your FTP. The interval can be on a climb or on the flats as long as the target power is reached.
Leave 15 minutes at the end of the ride for a cool down.

Sample Day 3
0:30:00
Core Workout of Choice

Sample Day 3
1:15:00
33.2TSS
Rollers or Flat ride w/spin-ups (power)

On a course of your choice do 5x1 minute spin-ups. The spin-ups will start by shifting into one gear easier than what feels natural, spin this for 20 seconds then shift into an easier gear. Continue to shift every 20 seconds for the duration of the interval.

The idea is to train your legs to produce power even at the highest RPM ranges. Really try to keep your body relaxed and the pressure on the pedals.

Sample Day 4
1:45:00
106.5TSS
Alternating Tempo, 20 minutes, CP45-60

Alternating Tempo: On a flat road, Warm up well. Once warmed-up ride 18 minutes, alternating from CP60/100 FTP to CP45/110 FTP every 6 minutes. 85-100 rpm.

CP=Critical Power: The amount of time you can maintain at a given intensity. Example, CP60 would be the max effort you could maintain for 60 minutes.

Sample Day 5
3:15:00
152.3TSS
Slow burn+climb

Zone 2 @ 80-85 rpm's avg with 5 miles of mild climbing.

Sample Day 6
3:40:00
132.4TSS
Endurance Combo (low rpm)

Warm-up in small ring for 30-45 minutes.
On flat to slightly rolling course do the following:
In your big ring, shift between a normal gear at 88-92 rpms and one to two gears harder at 80-84 rpm's. Shift every 4-6 minutes. Continue shifting between gears for 1 hr. Your power will and should spike when using your larger gearing.

Sample Day 7
3:15:00
117.1TSS
3five short tempo

After a good warm up attack at a high endurance speed. Drive hard into corners, sprint over the top of the hills etc. The key to this workout is to maintain a good tempo through the entire effort, even after making a gut busting push over the crest of a climb. Max effort should be high zone 4!
You will do 3x5 minute intervals. The rest phase is up to you; just make sure you are rested well enough to put in a good 5 minute interval.
