Hi, all, I recently did the FTP ramp test and messed it up by standing for the last bit–see this post. Honestly I gave that ramp test pretty much my all and don’t want to take another FTP test for at least two weeks. I tried out the FTP that my flawed test gave me today on my new mid volume base 1 (adaptive training) plan (workout was Peavine) and found it pretty easy (but that’s a very easy workout so that doesn’t mean much)-- I’m worried however that this FTP I’m using is too high for me though.
(1) Does using an FTP that’s too high for you hurt training by putting you in the wrong zones/stunting recovery, etc.?
(2) Is there a particular workout that I can try that I probably would fail if and only if my FTP is indeed too high for me (please don’t suggest FTP test lol)?
