8-week FTP Builder (10-12 hours/week)
Landry BoboAll plans by this Coach
This training plan is for athletes who are looking to improve their Functional Threshold Power (FTP). This block will help those seeking to improve their climbing or time trialing abilities, or just general fitness to prepare for an event. FTP is one of the biggest predictors of performance for a cyclist. The 10-12 hours/wk program is great for advanced riders seeking to improve their FTP.
This plan features structured workouts on the weekdays, with more open unstructured type workouts on the weekends. This works well for those with limited time during the week, but who like to get out for longer rides with their friends on the weekends. There are two rest days programmed per week. Depending on the terrain near your house, the interval session may be best performed on the trainer. But fear not, there are plenty of endurance rides and "free rides" for getting out and having fun!
This plan is ideal for those seeking to prepare for an upcoming season or event and want to raise their FTP for events such as time trials, hill climbs, road races, and gran fondos. The 10-12 hour per week plan is for more advanced athletes with good flexibility for training. This plan is best for those who have already completed at least 1-2 months of base training.
