Hey - new to TR. Got into biking around May, about ~900 miles on two wheels according to Strava. No real endurance oriented training in the past, but off and on strength training over the past decade. Imported my rides from Strava and got an estimated FTP of around ~110w.
Picked up a Wahoo Kickr and ran the ramp test this morning. Was hard to hold the 50w or so for the warmup without spinning out and the first few intervals were super spiky (both past the target and to a floor of 0). Once I settled into a cadence of 90 rpm the power smoothed out pretty well, was flailing like a fish out of water at 110 rpm before that. Failed out on the 29th step (not including the warmup interval) for an FTP of 187. Any impact of having to do so many intervals before the fail? I imagine I would have failed maybe 10 mins earlier if the estimate was closer to the test result. Rather start jumping into the workouts, not keen on doing that test again
FWIW I weigh about 90kg so its not an impressive number
