I feel a bit like someone who turns up to an AA meeting.
Hi I’m Rob and I want to lose weight. I’m currently 100kg and my FTP is 324 (it was 332 but it has dropped since I lost a couple of kgs).
My question is what training plan would people suggest I follow to help with a daily 1000kcal deficit goal. I have just started mid base 2 but I am starting to really struggle holding the intervals. I just feel too tired. Do I continue but reduce the intensity?
My gut is to focus more on endurance rides of 1-1.30h daily combined with a better diet. It is quite demoralising to fail on a SS workout that I would’ve been able to make a few weeks ago.
I’ve thought about timing my workouts so they happen 1-2 hours after eating but that is quite hard to time in a busy day and consequently I just don’t do the workout.
My primary goal is to slim down and my secondary goal is to maintain FTP as best as possible.
Thanks in advance.
