mtb enduro racer looking to build endurance


(paul scott) #1

hi all, im mainly a mountain biker, i do the odd enduro race here n there. i find although i have some power in my legs i really need to work on the endurance side of things though…

can someone point me in the right direction in regards on how best to use zwift, should i get on a workout program or just crack on with riding the courses ??

 

thanks

Hi Paul,

I am in a similar boat, riding mtb and racing enduro in daylight hours on the weekend and trying to get a bit of zwift training happening at night after putting the kids to bed. I have just started the Crit Crusher plan which has a wide variety of stuff and appeared to be the best fit for Enduro as far as I could tell.

From what I can gather pedalling fast is good practice for going fast (and raising FTP) so I have also thrown in a few zwift races for good measure.

I have a race next weekend (middle of training block) and one a few weeks after the end with a planned taper built into the plan so I will be interested to compare my times against previous efforts on the same trails for both races.

I would be interested to hear what you do and how you go?

Josh
