Simple Training - Non-Linear Periodization - RPE Based
Peter GlassfordAll plans by this Coach
This plan is made to be SIMPLE to execute. Descriptions are short and leave you lots of room to interpret the terrain and bike you use.
The plan uses non-linear periodization, that is, it mixes different intensities to avoid staleness, boredom and even injury. This gives you a chance to improve on 2-3 workouts each block. Rather then focusing on only one intensity level per month you are working on several systems.
It would be a good plan to apply any time you have a good basic level of fitness (2+ months of general riding or 'base') and could be adapted to be a great preparation for many race types.
It has downloads that will work in Zwift/Garmin that are RPE Based (NOT POWER BASED) to allow you to focus on feeling the intensity based on the day. Certainly use power to gauge your progress week to week.
Core is a quick 10 min routine done 3-7x a week with a PDF download provided
