Plan Description

“Feels great to break power records!”


There is nothing more exciting for a cyclist to see objective progress in the form of a new power record, giving you the evidence of progress and the feeling of confidence and added motivation!


Training plan description: The plan recommends a 20 minute power test prior to starting (power test protocol included with plan). The training plan focus includes two weeks of threshold intervals and muscular endurance training followed by two weeks of high-intensity V02 and above threshold intervals. Weekends are flexible to allow for group rides, social endurance rides, or even racing. Week 5 is a recovery week and includes a power test (testing protocol included) to determine your improvements.


This training plan is designed for the cyclist who can train around 8-10 hours a week and who is looking for some fast improvements with very focused and effective training. Prior to this plan you should have a good level of fitness and have been training consistently for 10-12 weeks for a minimum of 5 hours/week.


Testimonial: "I am a masters racer (age 52), and I purchased a 4-week FTP plan. I used it after my base period and was on the podium twice in my first four races. Completed it again to prep for a stage race - dropped TT time by 30 seconds, was third in the RR and made the gc podium in my field. I credit the plan with the improvements. Thanks!" - Jeff P
