Here is my dilemma. Been doing SSBI+II and Sustained Power build all low volume since end of August. Reason for low volume is simply a very hectic and stressful work life.
I read about all the increases in FTP on the forum but I am on a downward slope in my FTP.
I have been grinding with SS workouts and managed them even some of them are hard. But the results are not coming even after a good recovery week and well prepared ramp test.
I really dont know what to do. Maybe I am not cut out for hard intervals? I have changed my entire planning now to do traditional base work instead, in an attempt to have a change in training.
I am 55 years old so I understand that fitness gains do not come as easy anymore. But going from 240 to just above 220 FTP after yesterdays test really got me down.
Any other suggestions?
