This is a 2 month Plan to improve your Speed or 'top end' intensity. It asks you to work really hard a couple times a week and also be disciplined with training at low intensity the rest of the week to allow for proper speed and intensity the other days.
This is a polarized approach where we are avoiding training moderately most of the time and either going easy (low intensity) or hard (over FTP)
Is This Plan For You?
Any athlete can use this plan but it is best applied if you have a base of fitness and have been riding regularly for 3+ months. If you do not have this then consider my endurance boosting plan or any base/general preparation plans.
This plan is best applied 3-8 months ahead of your competition season to allow 3+ months of specific/Build phase for a goal race.
You can use this plan by HR, Power or RPE (no device) - you do not need to use downloads as the title and description of each workout should allow for completion of the key elements of the workout.
If this doesn't describe you please See all of our plans here !
What Does It Include?
A test is provided to assess your top end speed, sprinting and Vo2. Workouts are oriented towards improving those tests.
Core is a 10 min routine with a lot of flexibility based on what you need (examples/downloads included)
Downloads are included for some bike workouts ( for Garmin / Zwift Etc ). Endurance workouts or simple workouts or ones focused on technical skill may not have download to avoid confusion and direct your focus on relevant information for the goal of the workout.
*Consider our Custom plans if you desire indoor training plans with structured downloads for each workout please.
