Starting with SST1 I did a ramp test that gave me an FTP of 262. After the first three workouts I had to admit, that this cannot be right since I had to cancel the Mount Field and the Ericsson Workouts after 3/4 completely worn out.
So I did a one hour 20 Minute FTP Test with a result of 254. Now the workouts can be accomplished but e.g. in the Reinstein or Glassy (both first week workouts) I had to do two 5 second stops in the last interval and would consider the effort exhausting (9/10).
I am a bit uncertain whether it is ok to train further on this level of exhaustion or should I just drop the FPT manually? I mean for me it is ok to have a 9/10 and to have a few seconds of break in the workouts but I am not sure if this is the way the workouts are meant to be.
There is one other thing. Why seems the FTP to high for me in the workouts at all? Can that be explained?
Warm regards and thanks in advance!
