As an athlete, you put in countless hours of hard work. But are you sure you’re getting the most out of it? Different individuals respond to training at different rates, and unforeseen life events can cause training interruptions. In the past, it’s been up to you to adjust your training. Now with Adaptive Training, you’re an individual, and your training plan is too.
TrainerRoad is committed to constantly improving our training plans to make you a faster cyclist. We’ve used the data and insights from Adaptive Training and our machine learning algorithms to quantify workout difficulty more precisely than ever before. Every training plan still accomplishes the same objectives but has been optimized to increase its effectiveness.

We’re using machine learning to improve our training plans. With the help of Adaptive Training’s new, data-driven Workout Levels, we’ve added 641 new workouts to our workout library and updated all of the TrainerRoad training plans to be even more progressive.
Workout Levels are a new way to understand and compare the difficulty of workouts. Workout Levels go beyond simple metrics like TSS or IF, and better represent the real-world challenge of training.
To become a faster cyclist, there’s an optimal, science-backed training process to follow, and it’s more than just one type of workout. Learn how progressive training can help you to reach new levels of fitness.
