14 Weeks

Plan Description

Grave - So 🔥 right now.  Gravel riding is one of the fastest-growing styles of cycling, and for good reason: It’s hip. It’s brutal.  People race em’ in jorts.

If you’ve just accidentally hit the ‘purchase’ button on the race site your next thought is probably ‘How the hell do I get in shape for this?’

You probably signed up for that gravel race because when it comes down to it, being a roadie isn’t that fun, but gravel roads are. 

Good - don’t be such a roadie.  That said, you know what’s not fun?  DNFing. Trash talking for a couple of months and then having your friend crush you. Or (a moment of silence please) being too broken after the race to quench your thirst with a cold PBR.  

Don’t be that guy/gal. Check out this plan and show up to that race with your legs bulging out of your jorts, your lungs idling like a Dodge Charger at the line, and your mind fixed on an irresistible thirst for apres hops.

After these 14 weeks, you’re going to be fit as a fiddle and ready to CRUSH! Do you want the secrets to becoming a Gravel God?


  1. Science! - We went to school and learned fancy words like 'periodization', 'TSS', 'FRC', and 'carbs'.

  2. Structured Workouts! - Because if you can't export your workout to Zwift, what's the point?

  3. Race Tactics- When to ATTACK 💥in your gravel race.

  4. Gravel Grit - Complimentary mental training to crush butterflies and self-imposed limitations!

  5. Power-based Training! - Because who doesn't have a power meter now?

  6. Mobility/Strength workouts!- Learn how to touch your toes AND become explosive 🧨!

  7. A comprehensive guide! - We cover everything, from equipment to nutrition to race tactics to life advice!

  8. Skillz - Learn the essential technical skills to succeed in gravel races.

  9. Human Contact! - You can 📧 me at and we won't ignore you.

And More!
