100% Structured Workouts
Each workout can be exported to a supported device, which will automatically guide you through the session with duration, lap, and intensity prompts. Workouts do not have to be exported to be performed effectively, as the descriptions provide all the information to successfully complete the workout. See our Structured Workout page for more information. This plan leverages TrainingPeaks structured workouts with Heart-Rate based workouts, but you can obtain the same plan using Pace or Power workouts by contacting us.
Robust support and documentation for your plan can be found at the 80/20 Resources page. You will be able to contact the authors to request clarification on any issue.
