Plan Description

Need to give a little extra love to your bike strength during the off-season? This is an 8-week plan, geared toward beginner-to-intermediate triathletes who are looking to boost their bike strength. The plan includes 4 bike workouts a week, plus 2 runs and 1 swim. You'll also get 3 strength workouts per week, 20-min each, which include exercises and videos. The lowest volume week is ~6 hours, and the highest volume week is ~8 hours. The longest workout is under 2 hours, which makes it great for indoor trainer rides on snowy or rainy winter weekends.
