Pav Bryan - Amazon #1 Author + BikesEtc Magazines 'Cycling Guru' & 'King Of Endurance'All plans by this Coach
This plan is the latest version using all the latest TrainingPeaks features, current for 2021/22 and has been designed by me, Pav Bryan (coachpav.com) Amazon #1 New Release Author, BikesEtc Magazine’s 'Cycling Guru' and 'King of Endurance'.
Only my premium ("NEW!!") plans come with a free user guide (with new links to blog resources - sorry the links within each session no longer work) 40-week strength and conditioning plan (downloadable in session one on the calendar) and email support! If you have any problem completing your plan or have to deviate for any reason – I will personally recommend a solution within 24 hours.
This plan is for you if you are targeting criterium races (crits) this year and are comfortable training above 500 TSS points per week, this might mean you are close to being on the podium in crits and are already above Cat 1 UK (above Cat 2 US).
Once you have completed this plan you will be ready to start your taper into your main event. It would be advantageous for you to add some practise crits &/or chain gang style rides during the final two phases. When/if doing so, please replace the most similar session during the week.
This plan presumes that you have been riding consistently for at least 4 weeks (ideally 8), if you haven't, you should check out our Preparation Phase plans before starting this.
This plan is totally compatible (upload-able/exportable) with all good platforms including Zwift, TrainerRoad, The Sufferfest and many more.
You can use any method to monitor your training, power, cadence, heart rate or rate of perceived exertion, although power is an advantage. You get key rides and further resources (links within the sessions on the calendar) to ensure you are capable across every aspect of cycling; nutrition, hydration, technique, tactics and of course performance.
All the sessions you will do come with comprehensive instructions, links to videos, blogs or downloads, plus they have the workout builder function; full power, heart rate and cadence targets (where applicable).
Please note that my "NEW!!" plans don't come with a taper before any events (if applicable). This is mainly because most athletes have their own taper specific to them and less taper weeks means more training weeks! Feel free to get in contact if you need help with your taper, but remember to time to end of this plan so there is a gap between it and your event.
If you are using heart rate or RPE and would like a plan tailored to this, please visit coachpav.com for info on bespoke plans.
