8 minute FTP test what mode should my smart trainer be in

should this be done in ERG or manual mode?


Manual - else you’ll cap what you’re capable of. https://support.trainerroad.com/hc/en-us/articles/360003912172-How-to-Test-with-the-20-Minute-8-Minute-FTP-Tests (although I believe TR will turn off Erg mode during the test intervals anyhow)

cool, thanks for that info. Although I thought that the smart trainer should automatically go into manual during the FTP sections of the workout, but safe to just do the whole thing in manual to be fair.



It automatically goes to manual so it doesn’t mattee.
