A common question we get is which “level” of our plans should we do?
The three levels we offer with most of our plans is Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced.
We separate these levels by three primary things, 1st time available to train, 2nd experience within training, and then 3rd age.
The most important thing to consider is time to train as that is the biggest difference is the versions.
Basic : 4 - 8 hours per week to train. Cat 4-5. 50+ Masters Category.
Intermediate : 8 -12 hours per week to train. Cat 3. 40+ Masters Category.
Advanced : 12-18 hours per week to train. Cat 1-2. 30-40 Masters Elite.
These are rough categories to separate the levels and it might take a plan or two to figure out exactly what level works best for you. You also might want to have different level of plans for different times of the year depending on your races and schedule. A good rule of thumb we have found is that if you are in between levels, go with the level down and then adjust to add on a little bit if you end up having more time.
One more note. It is very simple for us to trade out your plan if you find that a level is to light or heavy. So just let us know!
