The 24 week plan will be a great choice for base building for skiing. It has a nice long gradual ramping and takes through extensive phases. I’d recommend it if you have the time.
Looking to put together an ATP with goals in the Sierra and Cascade volcanoes during spring in mind, starting sometime in late June once I wind my season down.
I’m wondering if the 24 week plan would be reasonable for base-building before moving into ski specific work in the early winter. Looking at 24 week then followed by one of the 16 week plans (with weekends built around in-season on snow training, hut trips, and having some fun), maybe followed by a shorter 8 week plan after…..but are any of these built to work together without focusing on a peak phase until the end?
I don’t want to peak or ramp up too fast, would rather have a long slow-roll into the fall as weight-bearing aerobic capacity is really limiting my objectives. Looking to build some capacity over the next 3-4 seasons….
