I’ve done two ramp tests this week… one on Monday (upright position on the hoods) and one yesterday (using the aerobars). The test from Monday was 267W and the one yesterday in aero position was 255W. Based on this I’ve got a couple of questions:
From reading around I understand that a drop in power when in aero is pretty common. Would the 5% drop in power I’ve seen be in the typical range?
What’s the best way to improve my aero FTP? Is it simply a case of spending more time in aero position? Or does anyone have any strength/flexibility exercises that have helped them?
