Advanced Base Module

For those cyclists who have years under their belt and are looking for that last 1% of improvement, here's the base plan for you.  Designed to improve your efficiency in multiple positions, under many different pedal tensions and cadences, this 12 week base module is significantly harder than my standard base plan.  Rest time is reduced, intervals are more varying and often more intense and volume is increased.

Recommended only for advanced cyclists!

Advanced Base Module:

  • 12 total weeks of training (10 interval weeks and 2 rest weeks)
  • 4.5-7.5 hours/week of total training
  • Progressively increasing training stress
  • Learn efficiency in multiple positions
  • Become comfortable in the drops and out of the saddle
  • Designed to work in conjunction with my Raw Strength Module for a complete base training solution.

About the Author:

After graduating from Ithaca College with a degree in Exercise and Sport Science/Pharmacology, I continued my education with a doctorate of Chiropractic from New York Chiropractic College. As I progressed through my education, I was able to apply the concepts I learned in the lab to my own daily workouts and goals. At the time, I was following some of the principles of traditional coaching and getting mediocre results. Frustrated, I realized that if I could apply all my physiology, chemistry, nutrition and training knowledge, I could “build a better mousetrap” not just for my own training, but for other athletes. With this goal in mind, I started Tailwind Coaching, to help cyclists [with busy lives and limited training time] become stronger, faster, fitter and healthier. And while I may not be a ex-ProTour rider, an Olympic Coach or even a prolific race winner, I am something that most coaches are not: a regular guy just like you who has a job, a family and a desire to be a stronger cyclist.
