16 Weeks of Sweet Spot, New for 2022💥: Intermediate
FasCat CoachingAll plans by this Coach
16 weeks of Sweet Spot riding to build your CTL and increase your aerobic fitness. We’ve combined the best workouts from Sweet Spot Parts 1,2, 3 AND FOUR for your all-in-one base training plan!
This is our Intermediate Level Plan on 8 - 12 hours of training per week. You’ll start with a Field Test will set your training zones, especially sweet spot! A second test will measure your improvement after following the plan! Athletes can expect to increase their FTP by 5 – 20%! You’ll find the FasCat Wattage and Heart Rate Zones Sheet that in this plan that has the all important Sweet Spot Training Zone!
As the weeks progress, so will your time in Sweet Spot. Recovery weeks allow your body to soak up all the training so you can go into the next build even stronger. The last few weeks you’ll put the finishing touches on your ‘base’ and transition over to ‘race’ with this plan by bridging the gap between the two with Criss Cross Intervals and Over Unders.
Additionally, this sweet spot training plan includes all the “marginal gains” details to get even faster: Recovery Techniques, Rest Days, Yoga, Foundations, and best of all, Strength and Conditioning – all you need is a physical therapy style rubber band and MOTIVATION! There are instructional videos in the plan for you to follow along at home. You’ll perform structured Sweet Spot and Tempo intervals mid-week and have the option to join group rides on the weekends (where we coach you on how to sweet spot in the group ride). There’s also recommendations for riding longer/shorter for flexibility so you can stay on track when life throws a curve ball.
