All plans by this Coach


8 Weeks

Plan Description

This eight-week plan represents an excellent starting point for endurance athletes who are taking their first steps into structured strength training, or whose training has been devoid of strength for a period of 8+ months.

The programmed days provide the strength workout along with a recovery workout. Additional training volume with aerobic and intensity sessions are determined on your own, or can be added by utilizing another of our Cascade Endurance training plans.

This plan can be done at home or a gym. For the exercises requiring a squat rack (back squat and deadlift), we offer alternatives where you can get creative with adding weight (use a backpack, kettlebells, or other heavy things you have around the house).
