A stronger foundation to

transform your season

Description

It can be frustrating for cyclists who want to maintain their gains but lack the motivation or knowledge to train independently.

This can lead to a sluggish start to the upcoming cycling season and even an increased risk of injury.

This program addresses these issues by providing an easy-to-follow training plan that specifically focuses on developing strength and stability off the bike.

By focusing on technique and gradually increasing training volume, you will build your confidence and prepare yourself for the upcoming cycling season.

Here's how the plan breaks down:

  • On-bike sessions per week: None. This is an off-bike only program.
  • Off-bike sessions per week: 5 mainly including strength work, but there are also mobility and high-performance recovery training sessions throughout the phase.
  • Typical time of year: Off-Season. I recommend starting this around 2 weeks after the end of your previous season.
  • Level of rider: Any.
  • Level of gym: Beginner/Intermediate. Some strength training experience would be helpful.
