HOW IS IT ORGANIZED?
The workouts are prioritized each week so you choose which ones you do according to your available time. Training at least 6-8 hours/week is advised before starting the program.
WHAT’S IN IT?
The 8 WEEK XTERRA FOUNDATION TRAINING PLAN includes a minimum of 3 swims, 3 bikes and 3 runs per week. If more time is available, extra time can be spent equally in all sports but adding more time in a 2:1 ratio of cycling to running is advised.
CAN I USE IT LONGER THAN 8 WEEKS?
Sure! If you have more than 8 weeks, repeating weeks in the Specific Strength phase will be effective. You want at least 12-16 weeks before your key race as this program is designed for use BEFORE you start the 8 Weeks to XTERRA Race! Plan.
WHAT ABOUT STRENGTH TRAINING?
Adding COACHING ON DEMAND will complement this program. Adding GENERAL STRENGTH CIRCUITS on run days is a great way to mitigate overuse injury risk and speed up recovery. There is a strength routine provided as an optional session in this plan but using the COD Library to complement this program will add variety and coaching instruction to your strength training.
There are specific instructions included in the document on how to execute the sessions, equipment needed and an explanation of some of the intensities described in the workouts. But if you have more questions just CONTACT MEL!!
