Sweet Spot Training Plan, Part 2 for continued advanced aerobic endurance training.  This plan may be completed after our first Six Weeks to Sweet Spot plan or begun first if your target event is less than 10 weeks away.

Build your fitness bank account even bigger with our second build of Sweet Spot and advanced aerobic training! Continue to work on increasing your threshold in about an hour a day during the week and 1 – 3 hours on the weekends. That’s 4 – 8 hours of riding per week with 2 over-reach weeks of about 9 hours to boost your Chronic Training Load 40-60%. If you haven’t tested your FTP lately, you’ll start this plan with a 20-minute Field Test to set your wattage and heart rate training zones including Sweet Spot using the included FasCat Wattage and Heart Rate Zones Sheet! Then you’ll test again at the end to see the fruits of your labors of a 5-20% boost in your FTP!

Plus, we’ve included 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 a Group Ride).  There’s also recommendations for riding longer/shorter for flexibility too.

  1. Steve Utaski

    I followed up SS1 with this program… right as Covid-19 shut down everything. I stuck to the program anyway, just reduced the mid week rides, but still noticed some great number gains. So nice to have training on auto-pilot. I’m a big believer in the power of Sweet Spot now. I was continually impressed by how much strain I could take on without needing a ton of down time to recover.

  2. Steve H

    Previous years I used beginner SweetSpot plans, but with recent WFH schedule I jumped up to Intermediate. Just finished SS2 and FTP jumped from 240 -> 262 in six weeks. I followed the plan, maintained good nutrition and sleep, and very happy with the results. Previous SS beginner plans I upped FTP 3-5% in six weeks. Buy the plan, follow it, and you will see positive results. 🙂

  3. stevehamilton100

    With recent WFH schedule, I just completed SS2 (Intermediate). All previous plans have been Beginner level due to limited schedule. Completed final FTP test, and jumped from 240 -> 262. Increased volume paid off since previous gains from FTP test were in 3-4% range every 6 weeks. Really enjoyed this Intermediate plan and followed it during the week, adjusted weekend ride schedule as an “all in” on Saturday morning. If you have 30 minutes more time on Tues/Wed/Thurs and a few more hours to spare on weekends, I suggest using the Intermediate plan. Highly recommend.

  4. t.garlinge

    Followed the SS PLAN 1&2 along with both TT plans, my FTP has increased by 25w. What I have noticed now riding at sustained power is much more comfortable than before I had stated with these plans. I also like how quick Frank gets back to you via email if you have a question.

  5. Flavio

    Just finished the corona indoors VO2 plan and boosted my FTP by 10%.
    Highly recommend FastCat training plans.

  6. Tony

    I have just completed the Six Weeks of Sweet Spot 2 Basic plan. I never felt like I was being over worked and all of the workouts were within my reach. My CTL has gone up by 20 points and I feel a lot stronger on the bike. SS3 next!

  7. bikemike23

    Completed sweet spot 2 in preparation for dirty kanza 200. Covid-19 has pushed back event date but will continue to increase CTL with Sweet Spot plans. Last one to Emporia buys!

  8. Kyle V

    I finished up the SS2 intermediate plan about a week ago. This was my first time following a structured plan and it pushed me to ride longer and farther than I ever have (750mi in March). Previously I would just go out and ride, or pick a random trainer workout from another app to do. I liked having a plan to follow and knowing that I’m riding with a purpose.
    As for improvement, I achieved a pretty modest 5W gain in my FTP with the 20 min field test on my favorite climb (painful 20 min at that). I went out a few days later on the same climb and achieved 20 min power just 2W less than my field test. This time I was not quite going all out and I stayed under my LTHR for majority of the 20 min so I know the gains are there. During the plan on one of the weekend rides I also achieved personal bests for 60 min and 90 min power.
    I’d also like to give a big thumbs up for the integration with TrainingPeaks. It makes it so easy to track your workouts, and I was able to sync the workouts seamlessly to both Zwift and my Garmin Edge. Nice to have multiple options for how to ride.

  9. Steve H

    I have used beginner SS2 last year following SS1, and received 5% boost in FTP. The plan is easy to follow, includes rest day (required), and I was always ready for the next session. Follow the plan and you will get results. Highly recommend.

  10. Patrick Bee

    Love the training plans. Halfway through SST 2, just picked up COVID, and been listening to the podcast for a long time. Easy to follow plans right to trainingpeaks calendar and to your headunit. You’d be a fool not add one to your cart right now!!

  11. andyblackman777

    Half way through Sweetspot 2. Lovin’ the plan, I like structured training but I also like group rides, This plan allows both.I would highly recommend it.power really coming on

  12. Todd

    Just wrapped up Sweet Spot part 2. Feeling noticeably stronger on the bike and perceived effort at the higher watts is much less than when I started. By the end of the plan I found it much easier to hold the upper end of SS range for the duration of each interval, whereas in the beginning it was a tough to do intervals at or just above the lower end. Starting part 3 this week and looking forward to more gains!

  13. ck76

    MY FIRST TRAINING PLAN – THE SWEET SPOT PART 2 – 4-8 HOURS A WEEK, THE PLAN WAS BRILLIANT NEVER FELT FATIGUED AND FELT POSITIVE EVEN ON HARDER WORKOUT DAYS, I STUCK TO THE PLAN CLOSE AS POSSIBLE AROUND FAMILY/SHIFT WORK LIFE. THE YOGA IN THE PROGRAM WAS OK BUT DIDNT DO THE FINAL WEEKS STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING DUE TO TIME, I MISSED COUPLE RIDE OUTS BUT ADDED THEM TO OTHER FREE TIME SLOTS.

    I MAINLY USED ZWIFT ON INDOOR TRAINER WITH ERG MODE ON DURING THE WEEK DAYS FOR INTERVAL WORKOUTS AND WEEKENDS USED EITHER ERG MODE OFF (SWEETSPOT RIDING) FOR INDOOR TRAINER OR GO OUTSIDE ON MAIN ROADS.

    FROM STARTING THE 20 MIN FIELD TEST ON DAY 1 WEEK 1 I WAS AT 237 FTP AND AFTER THE 6 WEEKS 20 MIN FIELD TEST IVE HIT A NEW PB FTP AT 252.

    IM DELIGHTED IN THE SHORT TIME WITH THE RESULTS AND WILL CONTINUE WITH YOUR PLANS ALL YEAR ROUND.

    MANY THANKS TO THE FASCAT TEAM

  14. david.rafeedie

    I have never used a training plan before SS2. Like many, I thought training for a big ride was based on volume and frequency only. After some research, I found FasCat Coaching and both the SS2 and California Death Ride training plans. After purchasing a power meter and following these plans, my cycling world changed 100%. I didn’t know what was possible. Training with a plan optimized my time and efforts and prepared me for the hardest and longest rides I’ve ever done. Not only did I finish these rides with PR, the day after the ride, I felt great! Not wiped out as was the case before. My hat’s off to Frank, Nadia, and the rest of the FasCat team. Take my advice and get a power meter and start following a plan. These guys know they’re stuff.

  15. David R

    This is the first training plan I’ve ever purchased. Well worth the money. Along with a power meter, this plan totally changed my cycling experience. Why did I wait so long??

  16. Stuart B (@quadrathon)

    This is totally in my wheelhouse. Six weeks of Sweet Spot has lifted my CTL to well over 100 and I have another 12 weeks to go. I love the T/W/T big day structure which fits into my busy life perfectly and I can execute these workouts during the early hours in the dark on my Trainer! This lets me get some outside time and recharge my fun batteries at the weekend!

  17. ellen@netvision.net.il

    The well designed training plan had the right balance of training stress to cause improvement but not too much to leave me fatigued. I started the sweet spot 2 plan while i had already been training and it gave more organized structure . Fascat is my coaching go to and i have been a fan of theirs for years because any time i have followed one of their plans i have gotten faster and better. Thanks for the affordable training plans.

  18. marcgwadz

    I have a decade+ experience with WKO and I’ve tried to add sweet spot into my training. I wanted a more structured approach and hopefully a more stable fitness base.
    I am seeing very good results so far, and I really like the workout formats. Accessing the podcasts and training tips provides a valuable complement to the training plans. I like the advice and no-nonsense approach. Not overly complicated. Because I was already training regularly, I started with Sweet Spot 2. As a masters athlete, I chose the Intermediate level but add in some extra time here and there. This has been a manageable level of training.

  19. Stefan

    This plan helped me stay fit during the first weeks of having a baby. While I could not fit in the longer weekend rides, the mid-week rides were great on the trainer as well as outside.

  20. John Haley

    Sweet Spot Part 2 was tough! Everyday I would get on the bike I felt like I was progressing. I have tried many plans over the years, but none a focused and comprehensive as Sweet Spot. I was able to increase my FTP exponentially and was amazed at the results at the end of the plan. Follow the Plan!

  21. Brandon Barker

    Sweet Spot Part 2 was the first training plan I have done and loved it. It was easy to follow, challenging but not overwhelming, and I saw clear gains in a short time.

  22. Jeremy Deibert

    I used this in the summer and it definitely help improve my FTP. It is hard to do long intervals where I live in Western PA, but i did like the structure of the workouts. Also – the people at Fascat answer all questions. I will buy another plan for the winter.

  23. willcaruso

    I have multiple plans from Fascat and they are everything you need and nothing you don’t. Endurance, tempo, sweet spot, flexibility, strength, core work, yougs….holy crap thats a long list. It’s all in there, be ready for some gains if you are true to the program!

  24. heidianna2

    This was my first training program, and my riding improved considerably after I completed it. I was able to fit the workouts into busy weekdays, and loved having the workout dialed into my Element so all I had to do was hit “start” and start pedaling!

  25. Evan Arthur

    Completed the advanced version of this program. Though the workouts were often challenging, the plan was so well designed that you always felt fresh for the next workout and improved immensely because of it.

  26. Greg Hays

    Great product, helped me make significant progress in threshold power in an user friendly format.

  27. Jared Purdy

    I loved how easy it was to follow this program, especially with the automatic downloads to my Garmin computer. All I had to do each day was select the day’s training, clip in, and go. It was training made simple (except for the training part, that was a little tough!). By the end of 6 weeks, my Sweet Spot capacity was definitely increased. This program will become part of my yearly training from now on.

  28. Clinton Campbell

    I do a lot of studying and then applying the principals i learned into training. Sweet spot trading is definitely the most bang for the buck.

  29. Nick

    The intermediate plan I used got me ready to tackle everything from hard group rides to long mtb races. Good stuff with some variety.

  30. Mike B

    After a great discussion with Frank, I went with the sweet spot 2. He gave some great advice how to incorporate this with a busy work schedule. Having a training plan makes all the difference to make gains in fitness despite non-cycling obligations. I highly recommend this and will be moving on to more of Fascat’s plans.

  31. Gonzalo Tixilima

    After finishing the Sweet Spot part two, I’ve improved in every area. My FTP has increased more than ten percent and I feel more powerful and confident on the bike.

  32. Chris Jennings

    Sometimes the hardest part of creating a training plan, especially a base period plan, is keeping it from getting boring. The coaches at Fascat recognized this and created a training plan that has enough variety to keep you interested and motivated throughout. Top that off with the training plan athlete facebook group for questions, off the bike yoga and core work and these sweet spot plans are the whole package.

    I started with Sweet Spot 1 and increased my FTP by 10%. I’m nearly done with Sweet Spot 2 and am already seeing increases in power above what I started at.

    Wether you’re a seasoned athlete or a beginner, if you’re not ready to step up to full on coaching the Fascat training plans are the first step to getting the results you want.

  33. Steven Fritz

    Just finished Six Weeks to Sweet Spot Parts 1 & 2. The plans were easy to follow and made me faster. Couldn’t have been better!
