Subject: RE: Anyone used Don Fink's 30 week intermediate program?
The Ironfit book is a great read for first timers. I read it cover to cover, twice! I am doing the competitive plan for CdA.
I'm in the middle of week 5
) and my only complaint is that the plan won't catch up to my normal base level until week 11. I do 12-13 hours a week now versus 7-8 in the plan.
I also think the book is a bit light on the high intensity workouts. I think both plans call for only 10% Z3-Z4 work each week. To me, that's a bit light for someone who carries a 10+ hour base into the program.
I have an Olympic race in March, a HIM in April, then CdA in June.
Overall, very happy with the book and plans.
