Do you know what is your Chronic Training Load?® Do you have your base fitness?
Designed for Beginner to Intermediate cyclists who use TrainingPeaks and have a power meter, the primary goal of this training plan is to help you increase your Fitness.
Crafted by USA Cycling-certified coach and competitive Masters racer Chuck Kyle, this plan encapsulates his passion for the sport, his experience from years of training and his success coaching dozens of cyclists.
This plan is an 8-week base plan (8.5 to 9.5 hours per week) that will assist in getting you a solid aerobic foundation so you can begin training for your next event. This plan is a prelude to other plans that help build your FTP, FRC, Pmax, and any other high intensity aerobic and anaerobic systems.
