Structured Workout Plans

Intensity Types and Structured Workout Plans

Do you prefer to train by heart rate, pace or power?

An 80/20 structured workout plan executed on the TrainingPeaks platform is the next best thing to having Matt Fitzgerald and David Warden guide you through your workouts in person. Structured workout plans are the same evidence-based 80/20 plans trusted by thousands of athletes, but represent the next generation of training.


On supported devices, workouts in the plan can be exported to the device. When the workout begins, the activity duration, laps, and your custom intensity will be automatically prompted by your device. Additionally, your daily workout can be automatically synced to many devices. Your workout is also presented to you using heart rate, pace or power to measure your intensity.


Supported devices with automatic daily sync include include Garmin, Apple Watch (via Stryd app), Zwift and Wahoo. Other supported devices with manual export include Trainer Road, Rouvy, Hurts Ergo, ErgVideo, Racermate/Computrainer, MaximumTrainer, and MobileIntervals.
