FasCat Coaching

FasCat has over 15 years of experience coaching real world amateur athletes: "Working men and women" that need balance and flexibility for whatever life throws at them. Before we design any training program we consult with the athlete first - how much time do you have to train - what do you have coming up?

We coach thru a custom designed training plan, monitor your progress thru your data and give feedback based on our expertise.

Sample Day 1

0:22:00
Foundation Work and REVO

Follow this routine: http://youtu.be/4BOTvaRaDjI
-
Doesn't take a lot of time, but is challenging and works. The focus is all on the posterior chain (read back, glutes, hamstrings). 
-
This will make you a better handler on the bike, better climber, and help cut out lower back pain. These are the muscle groups that cyclists often ignore, and pay the penalty for.
-
Standing Activation
-
Hydrant :: Hold 30- 45 seconds and perform 10 reps immediately after, both sides

Sample Day 2

2:00:00
130.7TSS
Sweet Spot Bursts: 3 x 15 minutes

3 x 15 minutes ON in Sweet Spot with a 'burst' every 3 minutes; 7.5 minutes recovery
-
Perform the effort at Sweet Spot Wattages, then 'burst' out of the saddle for 5 secs at 200% of your FTP (~___w) then return to sweet spot wattages.
-
Bursts are meant to help emulate the stochastic nature of bike rides, where you have to give it some 'gas'/hard efforts to get up a steep section, out of a corner or close a gap to a wheel.
