I’ve been trying to understand my fitness and decide on training goals based on my numbers.
What bothers my that I have a fairly large discrepancy between an actual FTP tested via 20min on trainer, and hard outside rides vs 5-minute power.
My FTP is currently at 265W @ 67kg, while I can also do 360W for 5 minutes (I did if few times on the climbs)
Based on the 5min power i’m thinking my FTP should be more in the levels of 290+W, or my thinking is wrong and i’m just in that very small group which Vo2Max efforst are very small % of the Threshold power.
Given the FTP vs 5min power numbers, what would be the recommendation for traning to boost the actuall FTP.
