4-week 6-hour/week Cycle Base Plan.
This 4-week training plan is designed for the novice cyclist looking to establish sound foundation of fitness, improve their Functional Threshold Power (FTP) and extend their Time To Exhaustion (TTE). This training plan starts at 6 hours per week all the way to 6.5 hours per week with an average of 5% increase in Training Stress Score (TSS) per week.
To know your FTP, we have placed one of Endurance Lab PH System's (ELS) FTP tests on the first day of the program. This FTP test is modified from the original test designed by Dr. Andrew Coggan and Master Coach Hunter Allen. Get the average power from the 20-minute test and multiply it by 0.95 to get your FTP.
