My 2x8 minute FTP back in December was 278.
My Ramp test FTP back then was 301.
I think I test a bit high in the ramp test, so I decided to go with 278 for my SSB1 MV.
A week ago my FTP in the Ramp Test went up from 301 to 323.
I have decided to dial it back to 305 for SSB 2.
Did Taylor -2 on Monday. It started out tough knowing I had 42 intervals to do!!! But I managed to complete the workout but it was tough.
Here’s the issue:
I now see that the coming Clark workout is asking for a few short bursts at over 600 watts.
I have never been able to get over about 520 on my dumb Cyclops Fluid 2 trainer. I notice that If I try to absolutely max out I am more likely to get some knee pain due to the immense effort after the workout.
I just don’t think my trainer will let me get much over 520 watts.
Do you think this is correct or is my sprint power just crap?
(I can knock out 21 minute ten mile TT’s and around 55/56 min 25 mile TT’s and my FTP is progressing nicely as mentioned above.)
Has anyone noticed that dumb trainers don’t get to the high wattages that a smart trainer can register?
