The Goal of the 30 Day Faster Lap Challenge is to:
• Go 100% around the track without getting tired.
• Increase Acceleration From Gate to the First turn.
• Optimize Track Speed Efficiency.
30 DAY FASTER LAP CHALLENGE
The key to this plan is to focus on one day at a time, and get the work done that day! This challenge is not easy, most of the training days are double workouts. If you can’t afford the time to do a workout early in the morning and one later in the afternoon/evening, then you need to pick one workout for that day and get it done!
You do not necessarily have to start Monday. Start any day. If you miss a day, don’t try to make it up, just move along and get to the very next workout!
The 30 Day Faster Lap Challenge will require a variety of training protocols including:
• Track workouts
• Sprint Workouts
• Interval Training
• Power Circuit Workouts (no gym required)
This training plan is flexible. On a day I have prescribed track work and you can not go to the track on say Wednesday, however you can go Tuesday, then go ahead and swap out the Tuesday workout for the Wednesday workout. The key to this plan is to try to complete ALL of the workouts prescribed during the week.

Also, many athletes using my plans have had frequent questions regarding doing other activities in addition to the plan. Remember that adaptation is the key and if you look at the workouts over the course of the program, the demand for volumes/sets/reps/intensity progressively increases and also may decrease at times (by design). In order to take on the weekly training demands, you will need to rest, recover, and also cool down well during and after each workout. So if I prescribe a recovery day, please refrain from going out and playing an hour’s worth of tennis. If you get sick, simply pick up where you left off on the program (more on that at the end of this). Pay close attention on how you recover day to day and take notes. This program is great in finding out how you personally respond from a consistent weekly structure, and hopefully you will learn a great deal of how your body responds to training.
Please understand that many of us respond and adapt differently in terms of time. Added stress (work, school, life) also plays a vital role in adaptation of any training plan. If you get sick or miss a workout, don’t worry about making it up. Just pick up where it left off and feel free to alter the volume/reps or sets (making them lower) as to make a fluid transition back into the plan.
Lastly, if you have an important weekend of racing during any week of this plan, simply cut the work load by 30-50%. So for example, if I call for 12 sprints then do 6-8 sprints. This will give you a proper taper so you feel fresh for the weekend. Racing is sometimes the best training, so don’t feel guilty if you need to cut volume or miss a workout to race. When you come back to train, don’t worry about making up the prior week, just pick up where we left off. With all of the above said, plan on racing well prepared with a Faster Lap Time! Race aggressively and hard. Vision yourself doing well and focus on your goals of this event during your training day to day. This is how the pros do it, and there is no reason why you can’t focus the same either! In terms of goals, the number one goal that the athlete should be focusing on is being better than self. If you focus on that, then that’s all you can control, and more than likely you will accomplish that goal. Again, thank you for entrusting me with your preparation, and all the best with your training and racing efforts!
