Training Plans of the STARS

There has been a lot of interest recently regarding what training schemes should be undertaken for maximum success for racers in 2011.

Given the large amount of threads and user-generated content, I decided to do some legwork for all of you out there, and gather (from various sources) a range of training options that will cover the largest section of training preferences & tastes.

After consulting the experts, searching through threads, and gathering as many varying opinions as I could - the options have been formatted similarly for easy comparison and will be presented herein.

ahem....

Without Further Adieu, let me present
Training Plans of the STARS

I'm confident that there will be dissenting opinions, angry voices who claim to have been left out...


well, I did the leg work on this one and you didn't...



so in my opinion, Tough Cookies

Confession: sometimes we just buy the generic "Kid-O's" or "TuxedOs"(?) instead of the real deal.

How much it will affect this season's results is yet to be seen.

I put $0.50 into a vending machine at the stop-n-go bathroom and was given a training plan.

Don't use it. Those are old and out of date. The current training plans are 4 quarters these days.

unless the girlscouts have capitulated and now sell approved training plans, I am forced to conclude that you are taking substances which have not been approved by UCI (universal cookie inspectors)...

This is a problem.

Be aware, you may be tested or picked up for your egregious violations of the CBP (cycling biscuit passport)

Let me guess;
after following your plan with great zeal, at the end of the season with zero results, your reply.... "well, that's how the cookie crumbles"
