I’ve been wanting to design a sweet spot with VO2 Max intervals plan for awhile now. After listening to everyone’s feedback and response to sweet spot parts 1 - 2 & 3 + the 18 weeks of sweet spot, I have designed Sweet Spot Part 4: Polarized!
This six week training plan will take you thru a 3 week Vo2 Max interval training progression on Wednesdays. On the Saturdays you’ll enjoy long sweet spot rides with TSS prescribed and instructions on how to apply this long rides to your individual preferences. Want to go for a Strava KOM or Segment Challenge – go for it. On Sundays will slow the training down as part of our fatigue dependent training plan design model with Zone 2 training. By riding easier you’ll recover well for your hard interval workouts downstream.
After the 3 week VO2 progression the plan has you do a rest week followed by a 20 minutes field test to measure how much you have improved!
This plan is perfect for the cyclists how have plenty of time to ride long on the weekends but limited training time during the work week and want to work on their high end mid-weekend and build their aerobic engine by riding sweet spot watts long on the weekend.
