Sweet Spot Training Plan Design the FasCat Way

Coach Frank describes how the FasCat training plans prescribe sweet spot training - its not as much as you think! Watch to see how many sweet spot days there are along with zone 2 and the number of rest days.¬†ūüĎᬆ

This six-week training plan will take you thru a 3-week¬†Vo2 Max interval training 6¬†progression on Wednesdays. On Saturdays, you‚Äôll enjoy long sweet spot rides with TSS prescribed and instructions on applying these long rides to your individual preferences. Want to go for a Strava KOM or Segment Challenge ‚Äď go for it. On Sundays will slow the training down as part of our¬†fatigue dependent training plan 5¬†design model with Zone 2 training. By riding easier, you‚Äôll recover well for your hard interval workouts downstream.

After the 3-week VO2 progression, the plan has you do a rest week followed by a 20 minutes field test 5 to measure how much you have improved!

This plan is perfect for the cyclists who have plenty of time to ride long on the weekends but limited training time during the workweek and want to work on their high-end mid-weekend and build their aerobic engine by riding sweet spot watts long on the weekend.
