FTP/Power Threshold Improvement 8 Weeks to Your Peak Masters
Hunter Allen & Peaks Coaching GroupAll plans by this Coach
FTP/Power Threshold Improvement 8 Weeks to Your Peak Masters is an 8 week plan designed for the Masters (over 40) Cyclist or Triathlete who trains with power, HR (Heart Rate), or RPE (Rate of Perceived Exertion) and can train 12 hours per week (excluding Rest Weeks). You will need to be able to devote up to 4 hours to training on one of your weekend days. This plan assumes that you will either be racing or riding hard on the weekend, so it includes three different weekend options.
This plan gives you the perfect taper, making sure you arrive at your event on form for the day you want to be your best.
FTP (Functional Threshold Power), LT (Lactate Threshold) or Wattage. The goal here is to raise your W/Kg (Watts/Kilogram). There are only two ways to do that, lose weight or increase your power output. Here we are going to focus on increasing your power output. This plan progressively builds your FTP with work at your SST (Sweet Spot) (88-93% of FTP), work right at your FTP and also VO2 Max, AC (Anaerobic Capacity) and even touching your sprint in the NP (Neuromuscular Power) zone.
