Personalised Online Performance Training Plans
CPS In-Motion has published a selection of power, heart-rate, RPE and cadence based online performance plans on the Training Peaks platform. These include both specific events, e.g. Ride London 100, Tour of Cambidgeshire, London Marathon, London Duathlon and performance specific solutions which are tailored to improve lactate threshold and critical power for athletes of different abilities.
Online plans provide a great alternative for individuals who are time restricted and are motivated by self-coaching, with structured sessions.
Typical programme duration is between 3-5 months, and are designed to suit cyclists and runners from beginner/intermediate to advanced, preparing for competitive events heavily reliant on power-to-weight, endurance and repetitive high intensity efforts. Lactate Threshold is understood to be the most important performance factor in most types of long-distance endurance cycling, which is predictive of an individuals success.
From Triathlon to Granfondos and Sportives to E/1/2/3/4 road races, improving lactate threshold and expanding your aerobic capacity is key to peak performance.
All online TP performance plans require the use of a power-meter or smart trainer with power reading, in conjunction with heart rate monitoring so you may assess aerobic decoupling (heart rate/power ratio over time) during key interval sessions and steady-state efforts. All plans have been recently updated with annotated session description, rationale, race strategy, pacing and nutritional advice.
Plans are also categorised into initial baseline ability based on power, and users should recruit the services of a knowledgeable exercise practitioner or sports scientist to determine accurate and reproducible lactate threshold power numbers, and be prepared to attend a follow-up when scheduled.
Users should expect a significant improvement in baseline lactate threshold power (heart rate can change either direction) if good compliance is met, although this is also dependent on diet, stress levels and quality of recovery/ sleep.
Fully customised online Training Peaks performance plans can be designed with your specific event in mind….please get in touch to discuss your event and training needs to help get the most from your training.
