Hi guys. I’m just after doing my first ramp test (previously I had always done the 5 min TT followed by 20 min TT protocol).
Some background: I’m pretty much an untrained athlete right now, two years ago I was well trained with an FTP of 300W.
Today I did the ramp test and used my Neo with the TR app and it gave me an FTP of 193 (75% of 257 I guess).
On my Garmin edge paired with my Quarq PM my peak one minute was 272 so 75% of that is 204. I also ran the Xert app on the edge and it gave me an FTP of 218.
So what should I go with, 193, 204 or 218? I’m thinking not 218 anyway. Perhaps 193 for indoor training with the Neo and 204 when outdoors with my Quarq? Im not sure. I also noted that the Quarq was reading 20 to 30 watts more throughout the test and subsequent 30 min easy (Dans).
Any advice greatly appreciated.
