Plan Description

This plan follows the proven successful "Spiral system" of reverse periodisation by the world´s most successful coach Brett Sutton. Follow it and reach you goals! Whether you are an Ironman or an Olympic distance triathlete, there is not much difference in preparation. This plan builds strong athletes, the strongest they can be and stronger than they think they can be.
This is the first 4 weeks of Block 1. But we are not starting from scratch. Getting to this phase means that you have completed at least the "quick start" training: 4 or more weeks of training after the transition period, have settled in a training routine and loaded your muscles with specific and unspecific training. This is an important condition since there is some intensity from Day 1 of training - because it is reverse periodization. Meaning that intensity and power endurance are in focus in the first 20 weeks of training, with volume increasing gradually to reach its peak several weeks before your priority A race. So it is a progressive intensity fire! The training load progression is very gentle to avoid injury at any cost - but your form progression will be fast!
