Plan Description

Masters Full Season Training Plan with iLevels


by Tim Cusick, TrainingPeaks WKO Product Leader and master coach with Velocious Cycling Adventures

WKO iLevels plan

Our WKO power-duration-based iLevels plans will make the difference in your training this season.


This 26-week plan was created by Tim Cusick, coach of national and world ITT champion Amber Neben, to progressively get you fitter throughout your off season and build into the current season. The plan assumes you have taken some time off the bike and offers two warmup weeks at the beginning of the plan to get you back in the saddle.


This plan combines three separate plans (Winter Base 1 and 2 and Spring Builder), all using WKO and the Power-Duration Curve. Your workout prescription will be individualized based on your data, following the Power-Duration Curve as you gain fitness. iLevel plans are for the serious, competitive, power-training cyclist. Whether you’re racing or getting ready for a big event, these plans will give you all the tools you need to kick start your season.

To use this plan, you will need to have a power meter and the TrainingPeaks WKO software (if you don't have WKO or if you don't train with power, you can still get these cutting-edge workouts and plans; just search for the Coggan Classic versions). This plan uses the advanced iLevels training protocol developed by Dr. Andy Coggan and the new training metrics available in WKO, like FTP/FRC, FRC, and PMAX. Learn more about WKO or watch Coach Cusick’s free educational WKO webinars.

These plans use the cutting-edge workouts that Tim prescribes for his pro athletes, with focus on fatigue resistance, intensive and extensive workouts, and increasing your Time to Exhaustion (TTE), Stamina, and FRC (functional work capacity). All our plans include predicted TSS and ongoing testing. Our full-season plans include a free Functional Strength eBook and a sports nutrition tips eBook.

Included with your plan:
- Instruction booklet (attached to the first day of the plan)
- Testing protocol
- Coaching comments and tips
- Tim Cusick's functional strength program eBook
- Nutrition tips eBook from Anne Guzman
