Hey every smartguy out there!
I’m abit curious on why my body reacts the way it does - and maybe some of you smart guys have a suggestion?
Ive been cycling alot over the years, and im in pretty decent shape - doing mid volume atm. Rested weeks, i have a resting HR at 36-38 bpm ish - and my top is around 198 BPM.
However it seems im having trouble getting my HR up to a point where its in the zone of power output. In ramp testing, i will fail around 180 BPM. And the FTP set from ramp test feels right enough, as the intervals are hard.
Today i took Mount Goode - threshold work 3x15minutes - and looking at my HR zones, i only did 43s in that area. It just seems strange to me? Alot of other guys i know, incl. my brother would in that kinda workout have hell of alot more in thier HR threshold zone?
So any1 of you know, how and why this could be? I feel like i may be doing something wrong? Could it me my blood pressure is off? or anything else?
Let me know what u guys think!
