I have a question regarding your new mobility plans. The plans are offered for 3 different levels: 1, 2 or 3.
Do you recommend to pick the level based on the training plan that is currently being followed? E.g.: an athlete currently following level 3 70.3 would follow level 3 mobility? Or should the level be picked based on current mobility (assumption)?
The other question I have is: Is there any specific equipment needed? If so, I would want to recommend to list those in the plan description and if no additional equipment is needed, maybe you also want to mention that in the description?
I thought that you mentioned some while ago that maintenance plans will be offered in different levels – do you have an idea on when these will be available?
With the current maintenance plan, how much fitness would be maintained?
Let’s assume an athlete was on level 3 70.3 and after the race, starts the maintenance plan (the general one for tri). How would you expect the fitness to develop/drop?

Winoria, I just updated our document Understanding your 80/20 Mobility Plan to include the following:
The general mobility plans come in three levels. Level 1 is intended for athletes who aren’t currently doing regular mobility work, while Levels 2 and 3 are for those who want to build on the work they’ve done. Because mobility and fitness are not necessarily at the same level for each athlete, your general mobility level is not necessarily aligned with an 80/20 training plan level (Level 0 to 3). Choose a general mobility plan that meets the criteria listed above, which may be a lower or higher level than your primary 80/20 training plan.
In summary, your triathlon fitness and mobility are not necessarily linked, so choose them independently. You might end up with a Level 2 for both, but you also might be a Level 3 Ironman plan and a Level 1 mobility plan.
for the Maintenance plans, they just keep getting delayed for other projects. My feeling is that they won’t be available not until 80/20 Triathlon 2nd Edition (no formal date yet). It’s important to us, but we’ve got a lot of other projects we consider priorities. I apologize for the delay.
The current Maintenance plan provides fitness of approximately a 75 CTL. Not world-class, but enough to be back to a CTL of 100+ within 18 weeks. So, the Maintenance plan would increase fitness for some, and decrease fitness for others, but all athletes would be ready to rock and roll on a moments notice while on the plan.
