Epic Build Your Base/Foundation 20 Weeks Advanced
Hunter Allen & Peaks Coaching GroupAll plans by this Coach
Epic Build Your Base/Foundation 20 Weeks Advanced is a 20 week plan designed for the Cyclist or Triathlete who trains with power, HR (Heart Rate), or RPE (Rate of Perceived Exertion) and can train 10:30-16:30 hours per week (excluding Rest Weeks). You will need to be able to devote 3:45-8:30 hours to training on your weekends.
I really don’t like using the word “Base”, as people usually associate it with long, slow easy riding. But, in reality, most of us don’t have time to ride our bicycles 17-18mph for 5 hours each day. We need to build that same “base” of fitness without spending 5 hours on the bicycle and that’s what these plans are designed around. Let’s give you a solid foundation of fitness in 20 weeks that contains endurance, tempo and FTP work, but doesn’t start you too hard too fast. Think of increasing the time at which you can maintain your tempo power.
The key in these workouts is the progressive nature of them so that each week builds on the previous one and your sustainable wattage gradually increases. This is what the “base” plan will do for you.
