ABOUT THE PLAN:
Have you been stuck in a rut with training and not sure what to do next? Have you plateaued? Not sure how to improve on last season? Well, we’ve got the answer and now is the time to refocus, recommit, and take your next season to a new level…
Made specifically for 65+ year old riders, this plan takes into account the important work:rest ratio that Hunter has discovered after having worked with over 500 Grandmasters in the past 20 years. Get ready to make your next season not only your best, but most EPIC season yet! This all-inclusive plan is going to guide you through your training for this spring. We have taken into account all of the factors that truly impact riders over the age of 65 on the bike and implemented them so that you are prepared and ready for the most EPIC spring to date!
This plan includes not only on-the-bike workouts, but we have included strength training and yoga in the plan as well, as both are beneficial and will have you riding at your best.
In your plan you will find an eBook that goes along with the strength training portion of this plan. This eBook will discuss why not only strength training is important, but what benefits it has, how to utilize it, and even has explanations (along with visuals) on how to do strength training exercises properly.
This training plan is made for cyclists who train with power, heart rate, or perceived exertion. We have provided an eBook on the first day of the plan that contains testing protocol and explains how to set your training zones within TrainingPeaks. That will allow you to know exactly where you are starting with the plan and provide the correct information for testing in the future.
This Grandmaster’s plan is built for athlete’s age 65+. It takes into account that as we age our bodies need more rest.
Go for it! You’re going to do AWESOME!
