I’ve hit an F.T.P ‘plateau’. My FTP is ‘stuck’ at 270 watts. I completed SSB Medium Volume. Moved on to a ‘build’ phase - Sustained power build, Medium Volume, but cant complete the workouts. I basically ‘cracked’ after about a week and a half of the plan, and am now just picking out the odd workout that appeals. What should I do?
- Start plan again but reduce intensity by a few % from the get go?
- Start the plan again but skip some workouts?
- Try a different ‘build’ plan?
- Return to the base phase, Repeat SSB medium volume, and then try again?
As a rule of thumb I struggle to sit on the turbo for much longer than 75 minutes so often look to the shorter workout variants if the workout is 1 h 30 mins of greater.
Confident my FTP is correct as had it independently tested. For info, i’m 52 years old, 78.5kg, 1.81m tall. Any advice welcome!
