Sweetspot transition into Hill Climbing Plan; Int vs. Adv

I have completed 18 weeks of Sweet Spot Advanced and will be transitioning into the Hill Climbing Plan

I have not purchased the HC plan yet but is the main difference between the Intermediate and Advanced plan just more Z2 work on the weekday workouts?

The advanced plan also has more full gas intervals and TSS in addition longer durations.

Philosophically I firmly believe all athletes over 40 should be on the intermediate plan (8-12 hrs)

Even if you can train more doesn’t mean you should :slight_smile: Physiologically you’re able to absorb more of the training, recover better and this get faster :muscle:

20 something and have 12-16hrs+ hrs to train :: go for it.

30+ you’d want to have a life situation career that supports your recovery.


Thanks, that makes sense! Mentally the challenge will be to reduce the volume, but like you say #FTFP

Follow on Question, I am using the Hill Climbing Plan for SF Haute Route…is that the right direction?

From our switching from base to race podcast you’ll remember dropping volume is good for your training when you begin intervals.

Yes to Hill Climbing for HR SF - lots of 7 - 10 minute full gas intervals specific to the length of climbs in the timed segments (see product image)
