Hello, I am pretty new to training or cycling seriously. A few months ago I started the low volume training plan and finished SSB1/2 without any problems and FTP gain from 120 to 170. However, I finished the first build phase unable to complete the majority of the workouts - I could reliably do the first 50% and would struggle for the remainder. My latest ramp test showed no FTP change.
I’m thinking my FTP increase at the same time as starting the build phase was just too much. What do you think I should do going forward? I was thinking of repeating low volume SSB1/2 at my current FTP. If relevant, I’m not training for anything in particular just looking for fitness and cycling gains. Thanks!
