Advanced Build Module

If you're an advanced level rider (you've been riding for years, been through training plans before or are looking for that last 1% edge) this build plan is the one for you.  This advanced version takes full advantage of all my high intensity training principles to create a plan that will increase your fitness in a big way.  Designed to elicit physiological gains that will carry you to success, you'll receive the following:


  • 12 total weeks of training (9 interval weeks and 3 rest weeks)
  • 5.25-8.5 hours/week of interval training (about 11-13 hours/week of riding)
  • Progressively increasing training stress
  • Raise threshold power
  • Unlock Zone 5, Zone 6 and Zone 7 power potential by raising VO2 max
  • Designed to work in conjunction with my Advanced Base Module and my peak module for a complete season long 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.
