Training Load By Week

This training plan is designed for the club rider or racer looking to complete the Paris Roubaix Challenge, or simply build their endurance and power to be in peak shape.

Sample Day 1
0:45:00
AA- Phase One Strength Building

Frequency: 2-3 times a week Primary Exercises: Squats Deadlifts Lunges Body weight exercises such as planks, pushups, and core Do 20-30 reps per set using 40-60% of your 1 rep max (1RM) for each exercise. Complete 3-5 sets with 1-2 minutes rest between sets. The anatomical adaptation phase probably starts right about now for most cyclists - after you have transitioned from your season and usually after a break from formal training and racing. It takes place 1-2 months prior to the start of your off-season base training on the bike. The goal of this phase is to prepare the muscles for more loads and repetitions in the upcoming phases.
