Learn More about Structured Workouts.

The included plan has been converted to Training Peaks structured workout format, called Workout Builder. Not only will you see your individual training targets and zones for each workout through the daily workout e-mail reminders and mobile notifications, but you will also see a graphic representation of the workout within the Training Peaks web portal and Training Peaks mobile app. Now you can quickly get a sense of the entire Workout by taking a look at the visual representation which will show you the individual workout elements like warm up, main set(s) (including interval efforts (based upon your FTP) and cool down. You will no longer have to read through the full narrative and in some cases interpret it and calculate your FTP in order to grasp the task at hand.

Structured workouts built with the Workout Builder can now be exported for use in third-party apps and select devices including Garmin, Zwift, TrainerRoad, CycleOps Virtual Training, RacerMate, Hurts Ergo and more. Simply click “Export” after building and saving your workout and select the proper file format For more detailed information regarding exporting workouts go to http://help.trainingpeaks.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000325647-Structured-Workout-Export

This 12 week summer training plan is built for anyone training with power, heart rate, or perceived exertion. We have provided an eBook on the first day of the plan that contains testing protocol and explains how to set your training zones within TrainingPeaks. That will allow you to know exactly where you are starting with the plan and provide the correct information for testing in the future.

This plan is for the rider that can train 8-15 hours each week. Most weeks are 8-9 hours, with a couple weeks in the 13-15 hour range.

This plan assumes that you will either be racing or riding hard on the weekend so has 3 different weekend options built in.
*Please note that the hours in the sample plan reflect the total hours for the 3 weekend options.

This is a great plan for someone who is ready to make their summer the best ever! It's a perfect way to keep the fitness you have (even improve it) and sharpen and hone your sprinting and anaerobic power.
