Training Plans Focused on MTB Racing:
What philosophy do our plans follow?
1) Start by building a solid Aerobic Base, which is the foundation everything else is built on.
2) Move into early season preparation to start translating what was done in the base period into speed and race ready power.
3) Start working on Specificity. This is when you will start to be able to try plans that focus on developing specific objectives like improving your sprint, time trialing, etc.... which can be done through the remainder of the season as weaknesses are identified.
