Where To Find Adaptations
Whether on the website or the mobile and desktop app, adaptation checks are automatically run when you open up TrainerRoad for the day. Once open, the adapt check prompt will display towards the bottom of the screen.

How are adaptations determined?
Why aren't my workouts adapting?
- Adaptations are only available for plans created through Plan Builder. If your plan was not made using Plan Builder, then you will not receive adaptations. Likewise, if you simply add workouts to your Calendar within the timeframe of your training plan, these will not be considered part of the plan and will not be adapted.
- Workouts will only be adapted within the current training block of the plan (for example, Sweet Spot Base I).
- In some cases, adaptations will not be suggested if it is not necessary. For more info, check out How Does Adaptive Training Recommend Workouts.

I’ve seen Checking For Adaptations every time I log into my account, but it has told me No Adaptations Required for a long time. Is Adaptive Training still working?
Why am I only seeing adaptations for workouts in my current training phase?
If I edit my training plan by adding or removing workouts, will adaptations still take place?
If you simply add workouts to your calendar within the timeframe of your training plan, these will not be considered part of the plan and will not be adapted, but their completion will still affect your Progression Levels.
