Is An Off-Season Maintenance Plan Right For You?
At the end of the cycling season it’s important to take some downtime, for physical and mental recovery. Our off-season plans are designed to maintain your well-earned fitness whilst recovering from your season of harder riding. The aim is that you’ll be fit AND recovered when the time comes to start ramping up your training again.
How Can A Maintenance Plan Benefit Me?
- Peace of mind that you’re training right – even in the off-season
- Maintains your cycling fitness, while promoting freshness and recovery
- Frees up your time in the off-season, for career, family and friends.
- Having a break now helps you stay motivated further down the line
- Feel fit, fresh and strong when it’s time to train hard again
Choosing An Off-Season Maintenance Plan
We have off-season plans for use on your indoor trainer, or out on the road.
Choose from our 4, 8, or 12-week off-season plans at Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced level.
The duration of your plan will depend on where you are in the year, and the dates of your target races. If you are tired from a long season, or particularly tough event then extend your off-season by choosing our 12-week plan.
The level you choose depends on your current fitness, aims, experience and time-availability. Click on the plans below to learn more about the starting requirements.
You can fit them all around a full-time job, especially if you have a little flexibility in your day-to-day timetable.
Providing you maintain your cycling fitness in the off-season, we recommend you commence full cycling training at around 16-20 weeks before your target events.

As you can understand, some limits apply, like personalisation or analysis of your training, but for anything else relevant to your plan, we would love to help. You also have full access to our online help centre, with videos and articles to help you train effectively.
We have a huge range of plans that enables you to select one that best meets your goals, schedule and ability. If you’re not sure where to start, read on below for a quick overview.
Our Standard and Masters plans are designed to get you ready for your target event, while our Off-Season plans are designed to allow you to recover from a tough season whilst maintaining your well-earned fitness. Generally, Masters plans are designed for athletes over 40 years old, although plenty of younger athletes love them too. The workouts are just as tough as with our standard training plans, but with more scheduled recovery days. And more strength and conditioning work, so you stay strong and flexible. Some find it easy to carry on with a normal training load, while others need to change their approach to training.
For the best outcome, count back from your “A” target race date and simply choose a plan to fill that gap (you can still work in other, smaller races during your plan). Note that longer plans start easier and progress more gradually than shorter plans. The body responds best to constant, gradual progression with regular recovery periods, and that’s exactly what our plans are designed to give you!
Choosing the correct level will help you get the most out of your plan. Generally, if you’ve never done this event before or currently train up to a few times per week, you might consider a Beginner plan. Alternatively, if you’ve done this event many times before or currently train 5+ times a week, you might consider an Advanced plan.
But don’t worry too much – we also let you swap the level for free within 14 days of purchase, if you find it too easy/hard!
Visit the MyProCoach Help Center for further guidance and to contact our Certified coaching team.
Certainly! Our training plans allow you to easily swap a few days around each week to suit your availability. Or you can swap out a session, to attend a similar group workout instead. That’s fine. If you opt for Training Peaks Premium (from $9.92 per month) you can even drag & drop your workouts onto different days. We give a few recommendations on how to best do this in our help centre.
And you can also train for multiple events! Our training plans guide you up to your target “A” race, but it’s also good to include some “B or C” races along the way. Our help centre goes through the exact steps you should take to enable you to get full benefit, without detracting from your key focus.

FEEDBACK FROM MY CYCLING CLIENTS
I enjoyed the training and achieved my 100 miles goal I got Grand Fondo TP, about 10 weeks. Was preparing for my solo imperial century. Increased my FTP for 40 watt and made 100 miles in 6h 30 minutes. Workouts are so good once you set up your accurate FTP.
I have been using Phil’s FTP booster programme. It has been amazing. I have increased my FTP from 183 to 227 in roughly 3 months!
I am two months into Phil's Advanced Rapid FTP Booster Plan and I am loving it. Just finished my FTP test and my FTP increased 9% in two months! I never knew that training with a power meter using a training plan would be so easy and fun. And it works - the results in my numbers speak for themselves. I am hooked and will never "just ride" again.
