30 week plan plan

Good morning all
Hope you all are well and safe
I would like to purchase the 30 week winter plan
I am worried that the gym part I will not be able to follow. I never been in the gym. Are there some videos how to perform the plan in the gym please?
Sorry for the silly question

The three main exercises during the resistance program are squats, leg press and leg curls. Leg press and leg curls are usually on machines that are fairly simple and straight forward to use.

The squats can be more of a challenge and really important that you use good form. We do recommend getting with technique from a trainer. You could also watch a YouTube video on proper squat technique then record yourself doing it to make sure you are using proper form early on while the weight is light.

Perform the three lifts in this order: 1) squat, 2) leg press, and 3) hamstring curl. During each lift, keep the range of motion specific to cycling . Never bend your knees more than you would on the bike . That usually is 100 degrees for all pedal strokes. When you perform the squat, lower the weight down until your knees are bent 100 degrees (just above a right angle) and then perform the upward motion of the lift. (Many research groups have looked into the effects of different “squat depths”, FasCat recommends using a conservative and safe depth and staying away from extreme versions of the squat.) Follow the same approach for the leg press—lower the weight down to 100 degrees and back up. For the leg curl, bring the weight completely up to your back and gluteus muscles.

Hi… I’ve just finished the power phase of this plan an suppose to do a 20min field test but after just doing the 2x30sec efforts decided to stop as my legs are just too fatigued from last week, one day recovery is never enough at the age of 51 now days, I would normally look at doing one round four days in to a recovery week but I see there are still some hard sessions in the recovery week so not really a recovery… ps I hate FTP’s as they tend to suit some one who is good against the clock which I am not, I much prefer the ramp test as it’s not as mentally challenging… would this be ok or is it that much better to do the 20min test…Thanks
