Friday

Cross training

Bonus session : Bonus Session – This session is not essential, add it to your training week if you have time.

Choose an activity that will help you develop your fitness and flexibility. If you already do this type of physical activity then continue to incorporate it into your week. If not, try something new like a gym class, swimming, running, or other similar activities. Remember to start all new activities slowly, don't overdo it. You can opt for gentle and restorative activities such as Yoga or Pilates.

SATURDAY

Flexible day

You will probably need to adapt your training program according to your work and family life.

A flexible day like this serves to give you more flexibility to adapt.

So if you have to move the sessions, try to keep the following structure: 1 day of training on the bike followed by a day of rest or another activity.

Do not ride from one day to the next.

Sunday

1h40 bike ride: improving running endurance

Focus : How was your outing last week?

Were you able to find a steady rhythm or did you go too hard and struggle until the end? Really try to be disciplined about respecting Zones 1-2.

Warm-up #1:

Rhythm is key. Stay in Zone 1-2. This may seem very easy to achieve at first, but be disciplined and stick to your zones.

Fine-tune your nutrition and hydration strategies during this outing. There may come a time when you want to go out with friends or members of a cycling club. It's great and you'll learn techniques for riding in a peloton and/or group, but don't be pushed to ride at a pace that's too fast for you.

 

And our nutrition advice to help you perform:

30 min before each session, take Stimium® PreWorkOut Max (2 spoons diluted in a shaker or a large glass of water). It will help you improve your muscle work and resistance to exercise capabilities.

During each outing, take Stimium® boost Powder (1 measuring spoon in 1 bottle, drink a sip every 30 min) or alternatively our Stimium® boost gummies (one gum every 30 min) to support the effort.

Within 1h30 of your outing take Stimium® Rgn3 Clean-Up (1 measuring spoon in 1 bottle, drink a sip every 30 min) . This will allow you to replenish your stocks of glycogen, vitamins and minerals.

For your long outing, Stimium® Pro-Nrj caps (up to 4 capsules 30 min before the race). A super powerful boost to perform.

If you have some cramps, take 2 sticks of Stimium® Mc3 after your outings and 2 in the evening. Continue for 2, 3 days.
