YOUR SHORTCUT TO FAST Peaks Coaching Group

Spring FTP/Power Threshold Improvement 12 Weeks Intermediate/Advanced is a 12 week plan designed for the Cyclist or Triathlete who trains with power, HR (Heart Rate), or RPE (Rate of Perceived Exertion) and can train 11-20:45 hours per week (excluding Rest Weeks). You will need to be able to devote between 3:30-9 hours to training on your weekends. This plan is a Prep and Race Plan, so it includes a Race/No Race Schedule for Friday thru Sunday and can be used by non-racers.

Our Spring plans build on the fitness you maintained and hopefully gained over the winter and incorporates FRC (Functional Reserve Capacity) work that you will need for early season races and rides. We will work on your NP (Neuromuscular Power)/Sprinting and your short AC (Anaerobic Capacity) Power, which are two important training zones you need for those early season events.

Of course, you’ll continue improving your FTP (Functional Threshold Power) with more and more work right at your FTP with some of my favorite FTP Workouts!
