This plan is designed around the research on lifting for cycling performance. Cyclists should be lifting if they want to get faster! Both lifting and riding volume increase throughout the plan. Running can be substituted for other forms of cross training.

I recommend watching my video on weight lifting to go along with this plan: https://youtu.be/V88wwTCs680

As always the plan is simple, easy to follow, and based on research, not assumptions. Everything you need and nothing you don't.

CTS

I'm a CTS cycling coach based out of Brevard, NC as well as an elite level ultra endurance mountain and gravel racer.

My coaching philosophy is simple: follow the best available balance of evidence. I try to base my coaching decisions on research, not assumptions. My training plans reflect this, they are simple and easy to follow without a lot of bells and whistles. Essentially everything you need and nothing you don't.
