FasCat’s Gran Fondo Training Plan is for the athlete and rider that has loftier goals than just finishing. Choose between a basic, intermediate or advanced training plan based on the amount of time you have to train per week, your age and your ability level.
This periodized plan will have you progressing your riding time to increase your Chronic Training Load (CTL) 40-60%. You’ll start with a field test will set your training zones, especially sweet spot! A second test will measure your improvement after following the plan! Athletes can expect to increase their FTP by 5 – 20%! You’ll find the FasCat Wattage and Heart Rate Zones Sheet that in this plan that has the all important Sweet Spot Training Zone!
Additionally, this sweet spot training plan includes all the “marginal gains” details to get even faster: Recovery Techniques, Rest Days, Yoga, Foundations, and best of all, Strength and Conditioning – all you need is a physical therapy style rubber band and MOTIVATION! There are instructional videos in the plan for you to follow along at home. You’ll perform structured Sweet Spot and Tempo intervals mid-week and have the option to join group rides on the weekends (where we coach you how to sweet spot on the group ride). There are also recommendations for riding longer/shorter for flexibility so you can stay on track when life throws a curve ball.
