I’m wondering how to evaluate my FTP gains in the past 6 months.
I am 33 and have been in decent fitness for the past few years.
I started Sweet Spot Base - Med in November 2018 with an FTP 282 (3.92 wkg). I progressed through that plan an onto General build which I just finished. Now my FTP is ~302 (4.19 wkg). Training has been consistently 5-6 hours per week. The only interruptions in the training plans have been for some B races that I would taper over 4-5 days prior to the race.
So, in 5+ months, FTP has increased 282 -> 302. Is this a good increase? Less than optimal? Great? How much should FTP increase? Would love some insight here. Thanks in advance!
