Cycling Pre Season Phase (Beginner)
Christopher JudyAll plans by this Coach
This is a continuation of the off season training program (see base phase). This program will test your FTP, or if you don't have a power meter, your threshold heart rate. You will use those numbers for the rest of the program, and likely make adjustments as you go. The final week will retest these numbers so you can make further adjustments going into the early season phase.
This program is designed to introduce longer intervals and jump sprints to increase power and on the bike strength, as well as 2 days per week of dedicated strength training. The strength training mixes upper body, lower body, and core with a focus on muscles needed for cycling, and movements that will reduce injuries.
