Now that you've completed one block of training, it's time to kick things up a bit for Block 2. Technique and aerobic development are still the aims of the block but we bring in some short harder efforts to get you going and of course, some more testing!

Each week consists of;
- 3 Bike sessions
- 3 Run sessions
- 3 Swim sessions
- 1 Brick session
- 2 S&C sessions

With the programme you will also be able to download a guide with our training philosophy and a list of how to calculate what zones you should be working in. Get in touch if you have any questions and check us out on social media.
