“Increase your VO2 Max power with science based proven training!”
Training plan description: Are you looking to increase your "race" fitness in a short amount of time? Maybe you want to be stronger on your local group ride or smash some of your personal power or Strava records?
This 6-week training plan is designed to increase your V02 power and fitness in a short amount of time with proven training based on science. The training plan is designed in blocks of 2 weeks followed by an easier week before starting the next block. The first two weeks have a threshold focus while the final 3 weeks are designed to increase your V02 max. A weekend group ride can be included each week (or the alternative session prescribed).
The training is with Power and is designed in the Workout Builder format which provides your personalized power zones in each training session which are calculated automatically from your Threshold number inputted under settings. Additional benefits of the Workout Builder format include direct training session sync to your Garmin or Wahoo device and training session upload to Zwift, TrainingRoad, CycleOps and more.
