Silver Coaching

Strive to Be Your Best

Silver Coaching is for those who are committed to a cycling programme and are in need of expert input. Aimed at those who have ambitious goals and want to train effectively with a power meter.

As always I start by gaining an understanding of you as a person and an athlete by:

  • Building a detailed rider profile through questionnaire and interview as well as reviewing your historical training data
  • Helping you define your short, medium and long-term goals
  • Creating a Periodised annual plan based around your goals for the coming season
  • Giving nutritional advice on achieving a healthy training diet

Next we move onto improving the effectiveness of your training by:

  • Calculation of your individual heart rate and power-based training zones
  • Power Profile testing to define your current fitness and to identify your strengths and weaknesses as a rider
  • Creating your bespoke training plan in TrainingPeaks

Your progress is then monitored and reviewed at key stages:

  • Every week we review your progress against the plan and (if necessary) adjust next week's plan
  • At key stages in the season we conduct Benchmark Testing to measure your progress
  • At the end of the season we conduct an End-of-Season Review to agree what worked well and what didn't and plan for the next season

As well as having the physical fitness for the demands of your event, we also need to ensure you are fully prepared in other ways like:

  • Making sure you have the appropriate equipment: bike, gearing, clothing etc
  • Having a plan for the tactics you intend to employ in a race or event
  • Having an effective pacing strategy. This is crucial in events like Time Trials or long distance sportives and Gran Fondos
  • Making sure you're psychological prepared, like having effective strategies for pre-race nerves
