Polarized training - 24 weeks for an amateur
The concept of polarized training is to perform 80% of training time in low aerobic zones, 5% in peripheral zones and 15% in anaerobic zones. It is intended mainly for experienced cyclists / triathletes who have already developed a solid oxygen base in previous seasons and want to go a long way in the development of FTP and anaerobic qualities. This translates into a holistic improvement in form in every respect. Most of the workouts are very light, but strong units are really hard to do and require 100% commitment.
The plan is based on the concept that for 3-4 months we work to improve muscle strength, FTP threshold and high anaerobic qualities while spending a lot of time in the low zones. 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.
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.
