So ftp is calculated as 20m power * .95.
My current ftp is 234.
ftp gains happen in small amount, let’s say 3% during my current 6-week training block.
So let’s assume I expect to gain 3% … 234 * 1.03 = 241
254 / .95 = 241
So if I can average 254 watts during the 20m segment of my test ftp test (I use the 20m test obviously) then I’ll hit my target of 241.
My question is, is this a useful pacing strategy or is this cheating the system somehow?
