This 12-week progressive training plan is designed specifically for the Haute Route 7-day events and is based on up to date training methodology and experience of preparing riders for multi-day events. The training plan follows a polarised training model where by 80% of your training will be at an intensity less than your FTP, and 20% above your FTP. This type of training has been proven to be an effective and time efficient method of training for endurance events.
As the training plan progresses the training gets more specific and starts to replicate the riding you’ll do on the Haute Route. The plan requires 10 hours of training in the first week, progressing to 20 hours in the tenth week, with an increasing intensity as well.
