To your first question. I don’t think you can modulate the volume of a program with “a single click”. That would be awesome and I need that too (though the other way round, I need less volume 🙁 ). In the end, as awesome the programs are, they are still cookie cutter programs and you have to adjust to your abilities. E. g., age is a significant factor. Nobody who is 50 years or older without training history could jump in any of those programs.
Hi Scott and all,
I am really enjoying the Mike Foote BIG VERT plan so far (although I recently just started) using the Uphill Athlete calendar and TraningPeaks dashboard. I have two technical questions about how to use TrainingPeaks and the UH plans together.
1) What is the best way to modulate the volume of the UH plans in TrainingPeaks?
I see here https://uphillathlete.com/making-the-most-of-your-uphill-athlete-training-plan/
“If you are starting a new training cycle using a plan you already own (once you buy it, you own it forever)—and you have not had a multi-month break from training and everything went well your last time through the plan—you should start the new cycle at a higher training load. As a rule of thumb, we recommend starting the first week of the Transition Period at an aerobic volume that represents 50% of your previous cycle’s average weekly aerobic volume. Overall, plan to bump up the training volume about 10% per week on subsequent cycles.”
Is there an easy way to “bump up” the training volume across all events in the 20 week plan instead of editing them one-by-one?
2) How does the TrainingPeaks Annual Training Plan (ATP) interact with UH plans if at all?
This is a related question, but I would like the volumes and TSS targets of my BIG VERT plan on the calendar to somehow sync up with the ATP in TrainingPeaks and cannot figure it out.
Thanks in advance for the help!
