GRANDMASTERS (65+) SPRING 12 WEEKS THRESHOLD IMPROVEMENT PLAN
ATHLETE LEVEL: Grandmasters Intermediate/Advanced
TYPE: Competitive Grandmasters Road Cyclist
HOURS: 12-18 hours per week
TARGET RESULTS: To increase your threshold and prepare you to race strong on the weekends
ABOUT THE PLAN:
Made specifically for 65+ year old riders, this plan takes into account the important work:rest ratio that Hunter has come up after having worked with over 500 Grandmasters in the past 20 years.
This 12-week spring training plan is built for anyone 65 years old and older training 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.
Our Spring plans build on the fitness you maintained and hopefully gained over the winter and incorporates FRC (Functional Reserve Capacity) work that you will need for early season races and rides. We will work on your NP (Neuromuscular Power)/Sprinting and your short AC (Anaerobic Capacity) Power, which are two important training zones you need for those early season events.
Of course, you’ll continue improving your FTP (Functional Threshold Power) with more and more work right at your FTP with some of my favorite FTP Workouts!
This 12-week spring training plan is for a cyclist or triathlete can train from 12 to 18 hours a week, has been cycling for at least two to three years, and is excited about really getting faster and improving their racing category.
This plan is specifically made for spring training and has options for racing on the weekends or group rides. This plan has 3 different weekend options built in. *Please note that the hours in the sample plan reflect the total hours for the 3 weekend options. The goal of this plan is to increase your threshold and be ready to ride or race strong on the weekends.
To get the most out of this plan it is important that you go through the testing protocols listed in the bonus week (AT THE END OF THE PLAN) in order to make sure of your threshold range. Please read the accompanying documents in attached as well.
GO FOR IT! You are going to do awesome!
