Spring Training Plan

The Spring Sizzler!

This 12-week plan is available to Free and Premium Hotchillee Members and focused on establishing a sustainable and balanced training routine. 

At its core are three priority sessions and two off-bike workouts. During the week we’ll be focusing on indoor workouts. The ideal is to have a smart trainer for greatest interactivity but you can also follow the custom workouts with a “dumb trainer” and power meter on your bike. For Zwift rides you will need a Zwift subscription. Weekend rides are endurance focused and can be indoor or outdoor. 

If you’re a Hotchillee Premium Member you can join the structured group workouts lead by the HotChillee Ride Captains. You can also sign up for the yoga and Pilates classes as your off-bike workouts, all of which are included in your membership and can be joined via the Rides and Activities page. 

The plan has been broken down into three 4-week blocks – the first of which is below.

Gain Train Faces

Weeks 1 - 3

Level 1

Suitable for newer riders who haven’t followed a structure training plan before:

2 x Grin(d)fest workouts

1 x 90 – 120 min outdoor ride

2 x off-bike workouts

Level 2

For more experienced/fitter riders who typically do 4+ bike workouts a week:

2 x Grin(d)fest workouts

1 x Thai Bird’s Eye workout

1 x 90 – 120 min outdoor ride

2 x off-bike workouts 

Level 3

For advanced riders who consistently do 5+ bike workouts a week:

Premium Members should check out the Rides and Activities or #Training_Plans channel in the Community App to select the supported group rides which best suit you. We suggest choosing at least one Priority Orange session to complete the Grin(d)fest workouts and the Bonus Blue sessions for your Thai Bird’s Eye workout. Free Hotchillee Members can access three virtual group rides and the first Pilates class each month.

Week 4 – Recovery Week

No matter what Level you’re following, every fourth week will be a Recovery Week. These lower volume/intensity weeks are when your body recovers, adapts and becomes stronger. Not factoring in recovery weeks results in burnout, both physiological and psychological, and plateaus in progress. The Custom Workouts prescribed for Recovery Weeks will reflect this, endurance rides will be lower volume and, for Level 2 and 3 riders, you should consider dropping a ride for that week. You should also reduce the volume of your weekend ride on a recovery week.
