The goal of this four-week cycle is to raise your Vo2Max and Threshold, enabling you to increase the power you can produce at all intensity. The plan includes a power zones, perceived exertion and heart rate zones are also included so even if you don't train with power, this plan will still work for you.

During the first, second and third week your training includes two key HIIT workouts with endurance maintenance rides, active recovery rides and off days in between to ensure that are you well rested and able to reach recommended targets on the HIIT days. The structured HIIT sessions are difficult but doable, and limited to no more than 80 minutes - includes a warm up, interval set with recovery and a cool down. The fourth week is your rest period where you can recover from the accumulated fatigue that you have built up in the last three weeks.
