Phil Mosley

MyProCoach™

I have 20 years experience of helping amateur athletes surpass their goals, while still making sure they have quality time available for family, friends and career. As a parent who works for a living, I know how challenging this can be.

My training plans are intelligently designed around a typical work week. I set proven, time-efficient workouts in mid-week, with longer aerobic workouts at the weekends. This gives you the structure and consistency you need to continually improve.

Sample Day 1

0:42:00
53.9TSS
Fitness Test: FTP and Threshold HR

This fitness test helps you to set your power or heart rate thresholds for Training Peaks.

Warm Up:
12 mins in Z2,
5 x (15 secs in Z4 + 45 secs easy in Z2).

Main Set:
20 mins maximal steady state time trial. Go as hard as you can sustain for 20-minutes.

Warm Down:
5 mins in Z2.

Note: Alternatively, if you have a bike training device with its own "FTP" test protocol, you could use that instead.

TIP: Have a fan and/or air conditioning, so that heat stress is not a limiting factor for this test.

Sample Day 1

0:40:00
Base Phase 1: Strength and Conditioning #1

Please check the link below for full exercise instructions, progressions, alternatives and videos:

https://www.myprocoach.net/wp-content/uploads/SC-Duathlon.pdf

Whole Body Strength:
1. Squat: 3 x 12 (Exercise 1)
2. Single Leg Squat: 3 x 8 (Exercise 3)
3. Bulgarian Squat: 3 x 10 (Exercise 4)
4. Reverse Lunge: 3 x 7 (Exercise 6)
5. Tricep Kickback: 3 x 10 (Exercise 15)
6. Bent Over Row: 3 x 10 (Exercise 12)
7. Mountain Climber: 3 x 8 (Exercise 22)
8. Reverse Crunch: 3 x 12 (Exercise 26)
9. Plank: 1 x 3 (Exercise 20)

Flexibility: 5-10 minutes

Notes:
1. 3 x 12 = 3 sets of 12 repetitions with a rest between sets.
2. Rests are 30-50 secs.
3. When an exercise alternates right and left, the right PLUS left movement is 1 rep.
4. For unilateral exercises, perform reps on the right, then repeat on the left. Then move to next set.
5. Breathe out on exertion and maintain form throughout.
6. For flexibility see the link below or choose stretches that work well for you.

Sample Day 3

5 x (20 secs in Z3 + 40 secs in low Z2).

Main Set:
4 x (10 mins in upper Z2 + 60 sec recoveries in low Z2).
