Creating a training block is a great way to reuse your good planning multiple times.

1. Create a training block

1.1 Open training plan

Open a training plan or your calendar if you're an athlete

1.2 Click on "Create training block"

Click on “Create training block” in the tools menu.

1.3 Enter name and select weeks to include

Enter a name that helps you identify the block later. A good name is something that describes the content of the block for example Competition tapering or Strength development.
Select what you want to include in the block. It is possible to include both events and test sessions too. Maybe you want the block to start and end with a test, to be able to monitor the effects on the athletes before and after completing the block.
Select which weeks in the opened training plan to include in the block. We recommend not selecting more than 8 weeks. You can edit your block later by adding or removing new workouts.

1.4 Done

Your block is now ready to use. Next sections describes how to use and edit your blocks.
