New to TR, and structured training in general. I’m after some advice as to whether the low volume plan is worth doing to build FTP and just seeing if anyone can give any results based feedback that shows it’s still possible to grow FTP at such a low volume?
I typically ride purely indoors 3 times a week and do about 4 to 5 hours a week. With a big fat caveat that I’m the most inconsistent procrastinator that sometimes hits that and other times hits 1 ride per week. Hence coming to TR. My rides usually last around 1:30 to 2hrs and I like climbing so I usually naturally do 20 to 30 minute efforts in various virtual worlds.
My goal is to be consistent firstly, and secondly to push my FTP north of where it currently is. But am I doomed to plateaux?
I’m looking at starting on the low volume build phase. Any advice feedback most welcome.
