Six Week Spring Classic Muscular Endurance Plan
Carl JaunceyAll plans by this Coach
This six-week Spring Classic Muscular Endurance (ME) progressive training plan is aimed at Beginner and Intermediate Master & Vet cyclists who want to push and boost their cycling performance, but are short on time.
Targeting Muscular Endurance (ME) training will boost your aerobic and anaerobic fitness with minimal risk of overtraining. This training plan will help you ride faster for longer being especially useful on those long fast group rides or ITT.
This plan works best when using heart rate, power meters and RPE. Majority of specialized shorter ME workouts take place midweek, with longer endurance rides taking place at weekends. Due to this, the plan can be used for indoor and outdoor riding. Maximum one-off ride time is 3hrs, but can be shortened (discuss with Coach Carl) if this is too long.
The plan is targeted towards Masters & Vets athletes using a three week block cycle = Two weeks work/one week recovery.
All plans start and finish with an FTP test so we can measure improvement.
Once a week communication via TP/email/WhatsApp/Zoom is included.
Enjoy the training.
