6 Week Training Plan
This is a one off 6 week build program for Time Trialling for people looking for inspiration, needing consistency in their winter training but with no ongoing commitment to coaching from MBPC.

The plan itself incorporates all the key elements needed to train at this time of year whilst consolidating strengths and work on weaknesses.

This plan is designed to give structure and specific sessions for competing in Time Trial events.

We have applied the Matt Bottrill Performance Coaching methodology of training in order to apply progression and consistency to the winter training.

How the process works:

You’ll complete an FTP test at the start of the plan in order for you to set your training zones for the remainder of the plan.
The plan starts at 6 hours in week 1 building to 8 hours by the end of week 6.
You then have the option to come on board for one to one coaching if you have enjoyed the plan and want to progress further.
