FTP Builder Plan (12 weeks) (TID = 65:25:10) Challenging/Advanced Version (8hr/wk)
Alex fastfitnesstipsAll plans by this Coach
Welcome to the FFT FTP builder training plan based on the science of Seiler and Coggan and Allen. This plan emphasizes threshold (25%) but with a good mix of high intensity (10%) and low intensity (65%) in a pyramidal distribution. As such it is an excellent all round program. Some sesions are intervals: 75 studies show that intervals produce a greater response than continuous training at equal training volume (see https://medium.com/fastfitnesstips/magic-of-intervals-hiit-383f2f41958)
This plan is for intermediate and advanced riders who have around 7-9hrs per week and is rated as CHALLENGING. Most people would be better with the IMPROVER Version.

TIPS AND ADVICE
• Establish a regular workout routine
• If the weather is bad, train indoors but don’t skip entirely
• Ride easy on easy session days (probably easier than you think)
• By all means ride with friends but not if they destroy your training plan
• Don’t avoid the training session you are weak at; it is there for a reason!
• Don’t be tough on yourself if you have a bad session
• In each session start moderately, progress firmly and finish strong!
• Have a goal, visualize your goal and know why you are training.
Best of luck from the Fastfitness.tips team!
