Improve FTP: 12 Weeks
Steven BrandesAll plans by this Coach
This is a cycling ONLY plan for athletes looking to IMPROVE their cycling functional threshold power.
Every workout in this plan is compatible with Zwift, TrainerRoad, and Rouvy
This plan is on the lower volume, the weekly average hours on the bike is 6-7 hours and on recovery weeks goes less than 6 hours and on bigger weeks goes slightly more than 7 hours a week.
You can add more endurance rides on Sunday's if you choose, but its very important to keep the Sunday rides under 70% of FTP
This plan moves in 4 week blocks and changes the focus of training from Tabatta style intervals, to longer vo2 max efforts, into a HARD blocked threshold block.
If you are looking to see improvements in your FTP in 12 weeks, this plan will do exactly that.
