Lance Armstrong Comeback Plan 12 weeks pdf I'm hoping you can help There used to be a pdf at the link below of a great plan but it's been removed. I think it had to plans, one was a back in the saddle plan and one was more race orientated. Any chance someone has a copy or know where this link lives now?
Thanks in advance! What did the plan look like? Week 1: See week 1 Week 3: See week On the real thought I saw huge gains when doing those. In fact I just found it on Scribd. It used to be free! I suppose I can get the free 1 month trial and cancel out to get it. Dream Plus.

Maybe it was average power at Tempo putting the climbs FTP or higher.
The one caveat I do remember is CC's warning that these efforts required Recovery and added more training stress than you would think.
I think it's fair to assume drugs were a large part of the recovery process. Originally Posted by DaveG. Taking this on a thread tangent but has Carmichael ever admitted he was aware of Lances's doping or even supported it?
Having read wheelmen and cycle of lies, it does sound like Ferrari did most of the work, but I got the sense Carmichael still did some programming for him.
The first time I estimated my ftp based on RPE and my fitness went through the roof. Novice gains we almost maximized in my opinion.
I took 5 wks of chill and hit it again but had a power meter and tested ftp using his 8min protocol. Well my ftp was up by 20 points from the start of the first time I did it. At that point, I couldn't handle it after about week 5 or 6, around when power intervals started.
I say all this because, yeah, i think you need some extra edgar allan to sustain his programs and I believe he knows it. Especially since the premise of TCTP is people that have busy lives as it is and then we pile on workouts.
The 12 week comeback though, is more for natties as i've done upto 4 wks of that program before switching to TCTP. It has the awesome OUs and PIs aren't until the very end.
Or it could simply be that taking a vo2 max effort 8 mins and trying to base an ftp off of that seriously, wtf?!! So yeah, if you get an accurate estimation of ftp based on an 8 min effort and some sort of algorithm or formula, it's pure dumb luck. Another knock against the junior doper. For the record. They never claim that in the book and I've verified that with their coaches. I definitely, did not use that number to be my ftp. Again, just going by memory here.

So maybe too much hyperbole on my part in that previous post. But anyway Coggan has expounded on that a lot in the last few years. Here's one: Last edited by pedalbiker; at Every Second Counts.

By now it seems just about everyone -- certainly anyone interested in this book -- knows at least something about Lance Armstrong's story, and probably expects the full story to be inspiring. Well, this book certainly delivers, meets, and often surpasses those expectations.
I think there is a wide cross-section of readers who will find many parts of this book totally absorbing. As for me, I love reading about cycling tactics and the drama that unfolds in and around the pro peloton. There are many details about cycling in this book.
Though, of his TDF victories, only the first is described in full. The tour is described in an "Encore" chapter. Among the most interesting to me were the few pages about a heated topic that is rarely addressed by the parties involved -- Armstrong's sponsors -- which companies vowed unconditional support, and which company all but abandonned. Though I didn't expect to find details about cancer and its treatment as interesting as the cycling details, that part of the story is among the most inspirational.
It provides another example of Armstrong's intensely competitive nature and astonishing capacity to remain confident in the face of unthinkable pain, suffering, and adversity. In Armstrong's narrative, the story reads like that of some insane, year-long time-trial, cooked up by TDF organizers just to see if Lance will crack. Finally, perhaps Armstrong's greatest strength as an autobiographer is his willingness to candidly describe his weakest and most desperate hours.
One person found this helpful. While most people are probably somewhat familiar with the Lance Armstrong story, assuming he's like other professional athletes who have encountered adversity would be such an underestimation of this incredible man. His story, written in first person style sounding very much like he probably speaks, is awe-inspiring. He doesn't gloss over those years when he acted a bit like a jerk, or ignored coaching advice.
He's honest with his readers when he speaks of past mistakes which are probably rooted in an unclear vision of who he really is. The cancer that almost killed him he now describes as "the best thing that ever happened to me".
He doesn't spare any detail when describing how sick he was, nor does he try to make us think he was some big tough guy cancer patient, putting on a happy face through countless days of torture. His cancer story is very real, and this is a person that could not have come much closer to death. But he chose to embrace life, and it was this choice that brought about all the changes that made him who he is today.
Anyone who is procrastinating about anything in life needs to read this book for that kick in the butt that will get them moving. Need to lose a little weight? Change jobs? Run that first 5k? Get out of a bad relationship? You will realize how soft your life is, and how choosing to LIVE, rather than exist, will make you the best person you can be. Oops, did I make this sound like a self help book?
It's not at all, just an inspiring account of one person's life and how he fought back to become, in my humble opinion, the world's greatest athlete, and an amazing person. He is on the verge of winning his 4th Tour deFrance. Listen to what he says when he does, it will tell you what kind of person Lance Armstrong really is. We get to see the self-described Lance Armstrong with a large assist from Sally Jenkins on a journey from a somewhat disadvantaged childhood where Lance and his mother battled mostly economic odds to the present as a well-to-do Tour de France winner who has found a measure of contentment with a wife as devoted to him as was his mother and a newborn son.
The book is pretty well balanced between describing Lance's cycling and his difficult battle with testicular cancer. There is no doubt that the book is part of an overall effort to capitalize on Lance's amazing Tour de France win in and after, but the sometimes angry, sometimes cocky Lance may be a little difficult to understand or tolerate by some. Lance acknowledges a great deal of good fortune in surviving cancer but does so rather disingenuously. In addition, Lance was quite fortunate in that a bike store owner in Texas took Lance under his arm when he was very young and developed his cycling ability virtually from the ground up.
It is vintage Lance Armstrong when he has falling out with his patron just as he is starting to gain some national recognition of his cycling talent. On several ocassions Lance benefited from the right guy entering his life at the right time to provide the right kind of help with his cycling.
It did not have to happen that way. Some may find the book inspirational and it is to a degree. Others may see just how thin is the thread that separates success and even life itself from failure and even death.
I've already written my review, but now I can add that my kiddo loved it too -- and Lance is such a hero that I was happy to share it with her.
