The Coach of 2x Ironman-Champion Astrid Stienen uses this plan to prepare his athletes during a training camp for the upcoming cycle season if they have planned a camp for a whole week. This plan is ideal for beginner and intermediate cyclists who want gain fitness before they start the prep for an upcoming event. Please note that some additional stretching and massage is recommend. Before starting to prepare for your season you should be familiar with using a heart rate monitor or a watt meter.

The included plan consists Training Peaks structured workout format, which will make things even easier for you. You can see your own training targets and zones for every workout through the daily workout e-mail reminders and mobile notifications.

You will no longer have to read through long descriptions and get everything at a glance. My athletes prefer this comfort since TrainingPeaks offers this awesome feature.

This session is all about getting started. So let your legs spin a bit. It's a nice and easy start into the training camp. This ride is to check your bike and be sure that after travel the whole components work perfectly smooth.

Try to aim for a cadence of 90 rpm as this will help your muscles to sustain longer sessions later on.
