About the Plan:

This 12 week program is a Beginner/Intermediate Plan for off-season fitness maintenance.

The plan is divided into three 4-week blocks, each block having a focus on a single sport with maintenance workouts in the other disciplines. The primary focus sport will have four workouts a week, with the other sports having two workouts a week. Two strength workouts each week are also included in the plan.

There benchmark workouts for each sport at the end of the respective training block to assess fitness and adjust training zones. This plan can be repeated, in full or by cherry-picking a specific sport-focused block, to extend the duration of your off-season.

Workout Distances & Durations:

Prior to starting this plan, you should have a good base of an average of 6-7 hours of weekly training for the past four weeks.

During maintenance weeks, your volume for the maintenance sports will be:
- 4600 yards/meters of swimming
- 2 hours 30 minutes of cycling
- 2 hours of running

During focus weeks, your volume for the focus sport will be:
- 6700-7200 yards/meters of swimming
- 4 hours of cycling
- 3 hours to 3 hours 30 minutes of running

All Workouts Are Structured Workouts!

The plan uses the TrainingPeaks structured workout feature, providing precise workout details including pace or power targets for all segments/intervals within each workout. These workouts can be easily imported into devices, including most Garmin multisport watches and bike computers, as well as into trainer software such as Zwift. See the Structured Workout Help Page for more information.
