This plan builds your aerobic power, speed and strength endurance during a 6-week period in preparation of a peak performance. Scientific research shows that a 6 week period is sufficient to reach peak performance after having developped a solid aerobic and strength endurance base.

This training plan is based on the most recent scientific standards in endurance training. For the best results, combine this plan with a healthy diet and a well balanced daily schedule.

This plan is tailored for the professional cyclist with a solid aerobic endurance. Lower performance level athletes find more appropriate plans in this store. Please take a look to one of my other peak training plans.

Before you start a peak training program, we recommend to consult a doctor for a medical check up. Do not embark upon a training training plan if injured or feeling unwell. If in doubt consult your doctor before you commence training.
