Advanced Peak Module

Performance management chart with peaking and taperingIf 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) and you're looking to peak hard for an event, you're in the right place.  This advanced version of my peak program takes full advantage of all my high-intensity training principles to create a plan that will sharpen your fitness and hone your form to a razor's edge.  Designed to elicit physiological gains that will carry you to success, you'll receive the following:

  • 3 total weeks of training (3 “long” peak weeks and 2 “short” peak weeks)
  • 5-8 hours/week of interval training
  • High-intensity interval training designed to sharpen your fitness
  • Minimize fitness adaptation losses while building form
  • Designed to work in conjunction with my Advanced Base Module and my Advanced Build 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.
