ASK RIDE…What does a pros typical training week consist of ?

Hi Guys
What does a pros typical training week consist of?
Troy (Adelaide SA)

Hello Troy

Pro’s will be training any where between 12 to 28 hours on the bike a week in December with some core strength work and power training (for some riders) in the gym.

During the months of January and February a pro rider will be doing between 28 to 34 hours on the bike a week, with a mix of interval training consisting of strength, power, speed training on the flats and climbs. They will be still continuing with core body training pilates etc.

This all depends on the following factors:

- type of rider you are

- your strengths and weaknesses

- racing program

- goals

- Your team obligations

Eg if you want to be really mixing it up for the win at the National champs and Tour down under in January or getting ready for the euro season classics, Giro, Tour etc…. later in the season.

Good luck
