BUILD Anaerobic Stamina & Power Focus 8wk
As your peak condition grows nearer, a key shift from basic abilities toward more specific ones takes place.
We address the shorter, more intense efforts that can make or break a rider as the pace kicks up and more prominent, race winning efforts come one after another. We won’t neglect the sub threshold work here though, as I find that cyclists can still benefit from lactate clearance workouts that bring them to sustain near-FTP power output for reasonably long periods.
This plan will work well with the popular polarised approach to intensity distribution.
Great for Puncheur type riders, criterium racing, Zwift racing, fast group rides, short climbs.
