After doing a ramp test today, my FTP is way way down from where it was in the summer (from around 280 to 219 at roughly 68kgs). I guess that’s to be expected with less time on the bike and more in the gym.
I’m commited to using trainerroad this year rather than my usual 12 week sufferfest plan that I usually start in January. I’m about to start med SSB I.
My question is, which block do you usually see the biggest gain with FTP? I was toying with the idea of bumping up the suggested FTP straight away, but should I accept the easier workouts in the base phase will be worth it when the intensity comes in later blocks?
Looking forward to seeing what difference a longer term training plan has come summer!
