You complete a work out at a higher FTP but need back pedals to complete it so you end up with a normalized power of say 220. You do the same workout at an FTP 20 watts lower and you need zero back pedals to complete it so you also end up with a normalized power of 220. Was your FTP too high in workout #1? I’m kind of seeing this trend on a few of my workouts after lowering my FTP…….well the last ramp test lowered my FTP! I have yet to perform very well on the new ramp test so I’m looking for some other markers that would indicate I have it right.
