Here is what people have to say about Chris' Training Plans:
I thought I would drop you a line for feedback on the downloadable training programs.Fantastic! There wasn't any time to get stuck in a rut because the training plan always changed from one day to the next. I liked the switch up in weight training. I looked forward to the next day when it came to the spin classes. Some of the spin instructors did get a bit frustrated with me because I was in their class but not exactly following what they were doing. If there was a tough day e.g. pyramids intervals, I knew that the next day was also doable because you knew when to stick in the revovery days. This was a plan that was doable. I was able to test my climbing the ther week outside with hill repeats and I was delighted to do them so early in the season. Thank you for your training plans. Great job.
Thank you so much for all of your help.
Most programs are divided into beginner, intermediate and advanced. Beginner programs are designed for people who are newer to the sport or have limited time availability. Beginner programs are typically 4-5 days per week and workouts are 1-2hrs long depending on the season. Beginner programs are good for those that do not compete, but might be good for someone that eventually wants to compete. Intermediate programs are for those with some previous cycling experience and decent time availability. Programs are mostly 5 days per week with workouts from 1-3 hrs depending on the time of year. Intermediate programs are ideal for most Masters athletes and Cat ¾ riders. Advanced programs are for those with lots of riding and racing experience and very good time availability. Programs are typically 5-6 days per week and workouts are 1.5-4hrs in length. Advanced programs are ideal for top Masters and Cat 1/2 riders.
