5 Ways 2PEAK Will Help You Reach Your Goal

The Internet is full of different training plans with just as many training philosophies. At 2PEAK hard facts are the basis of your plan and a daily tailor-made training is the focus. There is only one optimal plan for you and your life situation – we want to find it. We outlined below using five 2PEAK functions that help us do this.

  • It is personal: You determine your conditions, training goals and the daily available time
  • It is dynamic: the plan follows you at every turn and optimizes the training load daily
  • It Is easy: The workouts automatically land in your training plan – compatible with the most popular tracking devices
  • It is smart: 2PEAK analyses your workouts automatically – no more tedious stopping of interval workouts
  • It has everything you need: 2PEAK is designed for multisport athletes

 

It is Personal: You determine your conditions, training goals, and the daily available time

At the very beginning you enter your training goal: sport and discipline, distance, duration and date. Together with the time budget you have determined, the specified main competition forms the basis for calculating the training period according to the three basic pillars of recovery, endurance phases and intensity phases. The distribution of the available training time goes directly into the planning of the phase. In particular, the more time-intensive endurance blocks are laid out in such a way that the accumulation of free days can be optimally used to handle large training volumes. 2PEAK weighs up different possible ways to reach the goal during the periodization and then chooses the most promising one.

An example of the set time windows on Monday and Tuesday. Time, sport and training start can be specified. In addition, recurring trainings (e.g. club training) can be marked as static so that they are not changed by the schedule. The “Max available Training Time” is set by you and describes the sum of your daily time windows. “The Usable Training Volume” is the time that is actually planned by 2PEAK currently based on your goals and previous training (adapts over time).

It is dynamic: the plan follows you at every turn and optimizes the training load daily

Training fatigues the body. It is only in the break between training blocks that adaptation occurs and increases performance. If you train too much and too hard, you will not get better, but worse. But athletes who sets too few stimuli stagnate. Only if stimulation and recovery follow each other in the right balance, will the overall performance increase.

2PEAK plans your training in such a way that this ratio between load and recovery is optimally tailored to you and controls ACTUAL and TARGET after each training. In case of deviations the system adjusts in real time.

But since each of us has individual background and abilities, 2PEAK depends on you to keep your data and your recovery level up to date. Your data comes directly into the 2PEAK weekly view by synchronizing with the most common training devices (see next point), and the recovery level is controlled by the battery.

By clicking on the battery, the recovery index can be adjusted according to your actual subjective perception.

The battery represents your recovery index, i.e. it reflects the load based on the documented training. If you click on the battery, you can change your index manually. If you think your recovery index is not correct, you should adjust it yourself.

Trainings can be synchronized directly with 2PEAK from the following platforms:

2PEAK trainings can currently be downloaded to the following devices (unfortunately other providers do not offer this possibility yet)

  • Apple Watch (via Plan2PEAK iOS App)
  • Garmin

If your current provider does not allow you to synchronize directly with 2PEAK, but does allow you to export the following file formats, you can upload the courses manually:

.enk / .fit / .hrm / .hst / .sdf / .spe / .srm / .srp / .sws / .tcx / .tur / .gpx / .srt

All training data can of course also be documented manually.

It is smart: 2PEAK analyses your workouts automatically – no more tedious stopping of interval workouts

The uploaded data is thoroughly analyzed and evaluated in 2PEAK. Interval sessions are derived directly from the data (e.g. power, speed or heart rate) and assigned to the different intensity zones.

Although the precise evaluation of the data already takes a tolerance into account, there is always the possibility to extend or even (manually) overwrite the measurement range. This means that a non-displayed interval (when analyzing by speed, for example due to an incline) can often be made visible.

It has everything you need: 2PEAK is designed for multisport athletes

2PEAK is available for triathlon, cycling, running and cross-country skiing. These sports as well as strength training can also be combined within the program.

So nothing stands in the way of your individual and dynamic training plan!
