I have been riding MTB for a few years, bought a road bike/trainer to try and improve my riding. Decided to give this a crack, not really knowing what it would be about. Did a ramp test and it put my FTP at 316.
I am currently trying to lose weight, as i have put a few (20kg) on over the last 18mths as well as improve my fitness on the bike over winter.
I didn’t really read what the base phase programs were about and started the Sweet Spot Base LV2 program instead of starting with SSBLV1. Is this bad? I got through the first few sessions ok then blew up about 15 min into a session unable to get anywhere near the 96% FTP it was asking me to do.
Should i go back and start SSBLV1 for the lower TSS to begin with or maybe move over to Traditional Base LV or MV as i have weight loss goals?
