Reverse periodization - 24 weeks for an amateur
The reverse periodization concept is to perform mostly strong, short units during the run-up period (fall / winter) and move to longer oxygen units in spring when weather and daylight allow it.
The plan is based on the concept that for 3-4 months we work to improve muscle strength, anaerobic qualities, and rhythm changes, which all contribute to improving FTP and speed. In the spring, we focus on extending the oxygen engine. The result is a long-lasting, high form for the entire spring and summer season with a higher than usual peak of form. Autumn and winter trainings are also not boring, they do not cause the peak of the form to appear too quickly, and prepare the body to work at high intensities, maximizing our possibilities.
For 3 months, you will go through the expansion of the pace and threshold zones, to work on the anaerobic zones and maintaining the results achieved. The average performance gain after this plan overall is 10-20%. It manifests itself in: easier maintenance of threshold power, improved FTP, faster regeneration between workouts, stronger attacks and sprints, the best personal times on the surrounding segments (especially in the 1-10min range) and the joy of improving form.
You can start training at any time of the year, if you have not trained systematically and you do not feel tired. We highly recommend starting it in the fall and winter period.
The plan includes tests for measuring the current FTP / LT level and updating exercise zones with instructions.
The reverse periodization plan is intended only for intermediate-advanced cyclists who want to prepare their form very well, without the risk of overload, and who have been training for at least 3 years. The workouts are varied and don't make you feel bored. You can transfer each workout to Garmin / Wahoo / Zwift and the device will improve you through exercises step by step.
The plan is developed in accordance with the latest concepts in cycling training for amateurs.
Who is this plan for?

Time needed for training:
Intermediate - There are 4-5 trainings a week, and their total time is 8-10 hours a week (about 60-90 minutes a week, 2-2.5 hours at the weekend on a trainer or outside to maintain aerobic capacity - given tips).
The plan starts on Monday by default and ends on Sunday after 24 weeks.
