step 1 - turn off brain
step 2 - pedal until your legs stop
the ramp test is more of a mental battle than a physical one. its rare (id say impossible) to increase power until you die. the brain won’t let that happen. its all about seeing how long you can manipulate the mind to pretend your not hurting yourself, all the wile having the goal to see how bad you can hurt yourself before the brain shuts off the monkey body. its a battle of will power. i ask my self…“who’s in the drivers seat? does the mind (my inner voice/ true self) run the monkey body, giving orders and running the show? or will i show mental weakness and let the monkey body over power the mind.” with out the brain the leg muscles would fire until the heart gives out. so that has to be the goal (however impossible that may be.) don’t worry about times or power numbers. you should be aiming for death. see how close your mind will let you get to that goal.
