Plan Description

This is an 8 week plan that assumes a base cycling fitness.
It generally uses a rest day Mon and Fri with a long ride on a Sat or Sun (interchangeable).

It is ideally suited to those with power and a turbo, particularly a smart turbo. If you have linked your Zwift and Trainingpeaks accounts the workouts will automatically pull through.

The plan is based on progressive overload with a gradual week on week increase in Training Stress, introducing some shorter, harder efforts midweek towards the end.

The main aspect from the fitness test you will be improving is your Functional Threshold Power, but you will be improving endurance too.

Don't forget to update your threshold HR and Power after the test!
