The training plan uses a focus of heart rate based sessions (however for sportive riders who use power, the sessions can easily be switched to power based efforts), and assumes the rider has a reasonable level of fitness (possibly having completed our phase 1 of Base training plan) or has been consistently riding for at least 4-6 weeks for an average of 4-6 hours per week.
The plan varies between 5 to 8 hours per week and has 2 or 3 REST days per week.
The objectives of this plan are in increase endurance fitness, raise training volumes, and indirectly improved FTP. The plan follows a simple principle of using at least 2 rest days in a week, and has only one session per day. There are also infrequent threshold and unstructured rides to add variety to the week.
