Moving FTP Ramp Test


#1

This is my first year using TR. I have always done my FTP tests on the weekend of the recovery week. TR pencils them in for the Tuesday following a recovery week. Would it really matter if I move it back a few days? I’d do Tuesday to Thursday easy rides, Friday off, Sat FTP test and Sun longer endurance ride.

Not at all, in fact I’d wager that you should be doing your test when you can maximise the power output. I did mine on the weekend then did a session on Tuesday before commencing my plan.
