Winter (Base), Spring (Build) and Summer (Maintain) -these plans are essentially three plans in one. While I don’t like using the word “Base”, as people usually associate it with long, slow easy riding. You will get a solid foundation of fitness in that it contains Endurance, Tempo and FTP work, but doesn’t start you too hard too fast. The key in these workouts is the progressive nature of them so that each week builds on the previous one and your sustainable wattage gradually increases. Think of increasing the time at which you can maintain your tempo power. This is what the “base” plan will do for you.
The Spring or Build portion will build your FTP with work at your SST (Sweet Spot) (88-93% of FTP), work right at your FTP and also VO2 Max, AC (Anaerobic Capacity) and even touching your sprint in the NP (Neuromuscular Power) zone.
The Summer or Maintenance portion is a perfect way to keep the fitness you have (even improve it) and sharpen and hone your sprint skills with NP (Neuromuscular Power) and AC (Anaerobic Capacity) work.
