Increase in the fitness gained within the academy programme.
Educate members on the training metrics within TrainingPeaks and basic training methodology.
I believe that to become faster on the bike it is not just about prescribing training sessions but rather the complete package including wellness (mind/body), mobility/strength, nutrition and practical advice on and off the bike.
That is where this plan is different from any other plan out there on Training Peaks. As we go through the full 16-week programme not only will we be training all the physiological systems needed to become faster you will also be working on your mental strength so that you stick to the plan. You will be given practical advice throughout to make you a more efficient cyclist meaning you will be faster without any additional effort. Every session you will be guided as to the why and how this fits into the bigger picture so you have the skills and knowledge to take ownership of YOUR training, complete the plan and keep up with your training partners on the road or within Zwift!
The plan generally consists of 2/3 key turbo sessions during the week, an optional session on Saturday and a longer ride on Sunday which can be done outside. These can be moved around to suit your work/family life situation.
Still, want to train on Zwift?
Don’t worry all the training sessions are able to either be downloaded for Zwift or even linked to your personal Training Peaks account so you can just log on and your session will be there for you to complete online.
Can I use this plan without completing the Ride Harder Plan first?
Yes providing you have a basic training knowledge and come from a reasonable level of fitness then this plan will take you to the next level!
