FTP increase but P-levels went down?

FTP increased but progression levels went down, rides are less intense (sweet spot going from 5.3 to 4.8). Is this just due to the FTP increase?

Yes this is normal. Its setting you up for success on your next rides. As you rate those next few rides it will make the appropriate adjustments to you PL levels.


Hey @Dgoff,

First off, welcome to the TR forum! :partying_face:

Each time your FTP increases, we calculate how much to drop your Progression Levels to allow you the time to build back up to those high-level really intense workouts. The bigger the jump in your FTP the more we’ll drop your PLs to compensate.

You can read more about this in the TR Support article I’ve linked below.

Just shout if we can help out with anything else down the road! :smiling_face:


You guys are awesome, thanks for the quick reply.
Love TR!
