I’ve used TR to extend myself up to an FTP of 320W and a W/kg of about 4.1. My riding is primarily solo expeditions or long gravel races (where there’s a distinct possibility I’ll still be riding solo) with a heavy focus on riding at a high percentage of FTP for a long time. I’d like to focus on this skill for a block but am having a hard time finding a good way to do it.
I dont have enough time to commit to SSBHV I and II despite the fact that SSBHV has exactly the composition I’m looking for.
SSBMV hits a lot of intensity and not as much Sweet Spot so also doesn’t seem to be the right fit.
If I’m looking to extend my ability to ride between 88-95% of FTP, are there other training progressions that anyone has used to target that on a Mid-Volume hour per week commitment?
