The plans do not periodise. Most plans have 4 week blocks with workout variations and increases in training load between blocks. However, the weekly structure stays relatively the same throughout the plan. We find this best for scheduling workouts around work and family as well as observing progress. Each week there is a variety of workouts to cover the main areas of training (strength, speed, endurance, strength endurance). The workouts and the combination of the workouts is designed to give the best return (race results) on training time invested. All of the workouts are used in Brett Sutton’s own training of athletes, simply modified to make them suitable for the specific training plan. We aim for the best return on training investment, not to see how many hours we can log in our diary.
