Online training platform Zwift has released a collection of flexible training plans for cycling.
Zwift Training Plans, like Group Workouts, are designed by professional coaches and athletes to aide users in achieving specific goals, such as completing the Prudential RideLondon 100.
Plans vary in duration and intensity based on the training goal and the user’s available time, and can be completed both on Zwift and out on the road.
Plans will give Zwifters windows in which they need to complete a specific workout session within each weekly block. To avoid the negative impact of overtraining, if a session isn’t completed within the set window, it will become unavailable. The plan will then rework the rest of the week to ensure the user is able to get the most from the remaining sessions.
From launch, Training Plans will integrate with the Zwift Companion App.
“We’re thrilled to roll out the next phase in flexible online training with our new Training Plans,” said Eric Min, Zwift co-founder and CEO. “These plans are expertly developed, to allow you to reach your goals while remaining flexible enough to adapt to real-world time constraints. Sometimes life simply does get in the way! Like all Zwift experiences, our Training Plans are designed to bring more enjoyment to your training.”
Flexible Training Plans are open to all Zwift cyclists. Users can find flexible Training Plans in the Workouts section of the game prior to beginning their Zwift session.
