I’ve been doing the Low Volume plan since March and adding outside rides beyond the workouts so that all of my rides aren’t on the trainer. After SSBLV1 my FTP went from 200 to 208. SSBLV2 got me up to 220. I struggled with Build1 and could not complete some of the workouts on the 3rd week. It still pushed my FTP to 236. I decided to do SSB2 again since the intensity of Build1 made it tough to recover. After SSB2 my FTP dropped to 227. I just completed Build1 again for the second time and my FTP has dropped again to 225.
I went in and calculated the average weekly TSS for all of my training blocks and it’s been trending upwards, not downwards.
Can anyone offer advice on what I’m doing wrong? If it helps, I’m 49 and I’m currently around 3w/kg.
