I’m a 19 y/o 70kg collegiate rower. Not gonna be rowing for a while, so I’ve been having fun on the bike outdoors and in, for about 6 months. I’d like to continue doing that! I have tried SSBHV maybe 3x but end up buried by the quantity and intensity of sweet spot by the 2nd or 3rd week probably too high of an FTP.
Pseudo Power Curve (only including recent max efforts here)
1 min: 700w
3x7’/2’r: 338w (4 weeks ago)
5x3’/2:30’r: 385w (3 weeks ago)
I’ve always been relatively bad at efforts around 20 min long and relatively good at efforts with a big fat anaerobic contribution. Currently midway through week 2 of SSBMVII working with an FTP of 320w.
Yeah, 370w for 20m corresponds to a very strong 350w or 5 w/kg, but I have a lot of time to train and I’m really hungry. How do I get as fast as possible over 20min in February? Do you think 370w is possible? I’ve got access to pretty much any/all equipment.
