Do you have more than 14 weeks available for Base Training? Try our v4.0 BASE PREP plan before beginning our BASE BUILDER plan:

  • v4.0 4-week BASE PREP Plan w/ Daily HRV Readiness Modifiers

  • v4.0 14-Week BASE BUILDER Plan for Competitive Cyclists w/ Daily HRV Readiness Modifiers

    Our 14-week Base Builder plan creates the foundation for your cycling fitness. Our plan focuses heavily on low-intensity aerobic fitness while layering in progressively higher intensity work as the plan progresses; all inline with the POLARIZED TRAINING philosophy.

    The weekly structure involves 3-day blocks beginning with an energy system specific session (higher intensity), followed by a structured Aerobic Threshold session, followed by a basic aerobic session. Weekends consist of a second energy system specific session (higher intensity) followed by a longer endurance ride. Strength training is suggested twice per week. Weeks 7 & 14 are 'recovery weeks' w/ optional testing.


    Plan Details:

    • Ideal Base Progression for all Endurance Cyclists: MTB, Gravel, Road

    • Can be used indoors OR outdoors OR Both!

    • Structured Cycling Sessions; can be performed in ERG mode on Smart Trainer OR take your rides outside with heartrate and power targets.

    • OPTIONAL twice weekly cycling specific strength training sessions; use your own program OR use our program available on the app Train Heroic (discount provided).

    • Testing & Recovery Weeks Built-In

    • Written as 8-14 hours per week; modifiable up or down to your desired volume of hours/TSS per week.

    • Metrics Used: Power, HR, and/or RPE
