Using the Default Joe Friel Workout library with your ATP

This is a simple guide to planning your daily workouts based on the volume and limiters suggested by your ATP using the Default Joe Friel workout library.

  • Make sure that you have the Joe Friel workout library added to your account.  If you don't already have it, you can get that here
  • Create an ATP
  • Once your ATP is created, you will see a column of "Limiters" or specific aspects of fitness that may be beneficial to target specifically during that period of training
  • Adjust your Calendar Layout settings so that your Limiters display in the weekly summary at the end of each week in your calendar
  • When you are ready to start planning your workout you can open the Workout library (the open book icon on the left side of your calendar) and begin searching for workouts
  • The Friel Library is organized based on Workout codes that correspond to specific Limiters
    • In the search box type E. E will get you all the workouts with workout code E##, or Endurance workouts. The only problem with that is it also gets you all the workouts with E in the title. So try E1, E2, E3, etc. You should have a short list of workouts with each option
    • The rest of the codes are as follows
      • E - Endurance
      • F - Force
      • S - Speed Skill
      • A - Anaerobic Endurance
      • P - Power
      • T - Test
    • If you are looking for a specific type of workout (run, bike, swim, etc) you can also click the ☰ at the very top of your workout library to filter by specific workout types
  • Find a workout that's a good fit and then drag it onto your calendar
  • Repeat the process until you have completed your weekly plan to the volume (TSS or Hours) suggested by the ATP
