How it works
Step 1: Survey
You complete the form.
You establish your goal and objectives.
You indicate your level.
You indicate your training knowledge.
Your schedule and availability for training.
You list your equipment and monitors
Parc national des Pyrénées
Step 2: Meet the coach
Virtual, thanks to Covid...
Zoom, FaceTime, Skype, Team, etc.
We review the survey.
We set the objectives.
We go over the training principles.
Let's roll ...
Assessment of MAP, FTP, VO2Max, carbohydrate and lipid utilization, lactate production
Step 3: Assessment
If not already done, a ramp-type assessment is performed to determine the Maximum Aerobic Power (MAP).
We establish the training zones in power (Watt) and heart rate (HR).
The test is done on a Home Trainer. It is a controlled environment and allows us to compare during the season.
If you are interested in the world of physiology or just for fun, you can take the test in a laboratory. Reference on request.
Step 4: Training Principles
Progression - build-up your physical qualities, reduction of injuries, basis for more intensity.
Overload - to improve determinants.
Adaptation - Allow time for the body to adapt to the new effort.
Periodization - Recovery period, at all levels: year, month, week, day.
Polarization - Maybe...
Recovery - Avoid overtraining and rest.
Trainning sessions on TrainingPeaks
Step 5: Your plan
Plan prepared each week on the TrainingPeaks site
Feedbacks for each session directly in your plan.
Training analysis with TrainingPeaks tools
You enter your measurements: Weight, Wake-up HR, sleeping time, perception of effort, etc.
Communication via Trainingpeaks, email, text or phone, no limits.
Let's have fun...
Step 6: Your Challenges
Whether you are a beginner or experienced cyclist, a good plan will help you achieve your goals.
A race, a better fitness, a bike trip, a better FTP, everything is possible.
