A properly designed off-season is key for improving as an endurance athlete from year to year. Striking the balance between reduced work load for recovery and providing enough training stress to minimize de-training is thus the ultimate goal.
In addition, the offseason is the best time for you to add and consolidate new athletic assets that facilitate you in reaching your potential next season. All while staying healthy.
This plan offers you:
– Dedicated swim, bike, run and strength sessions
– Mental skills and toughness training
– Information on how to nudge your nutrition
– Nervous system training for top performance
– Explanations & objectives of your workouts. Because literally in this case: ‘Knowledge is Power (W)’.
This plan will prevent you from making the common off-season mistake of combining weeks of too much training with weeks of too little exercise. The unfortunate result of such a poorly planned off-season is the inability to build on your previous year’s training and racing.
