I’m just finishing up my 3rd year of the weight lifting plan and I have to say I’m still seeing strength gains and look forward to the time dedicated to lifting each cycle.
I’m getting ready to put in the Summer SS plan and looking at the ramp rate for the plan and then flat no ramp when I got into the 6 weeks until cross plan.
My CTL after week 1 of Summer SS is 59, then 64, 72, 67, 62,75,80.
I plug in 6 weeks to cross and stay at 80 CTL until the last week of the plan. Then it goes to 84.
I plug in CX Interval plan and It stays at CTL 85 until the in season race plan and then goes down per the plan from there.
Seems like the ramp rate is going to be to high and realistically unachievable for a 50 year old working man. Is this the designed ramp rate with having these plans going from one to the other?
In the previous years I had a gravel race planned out and did a different lead into the CX specific plans.
