I’m new to TR and when I saw adaptive land, I signed up for a full year. I completed my Ramp Test after doing Adaptive SSBLV Base1:
FTP: 175w —> 188w
Really encouraged by my progress so far. I feel stronger and have seen improvements not just in my riding but also in my running. Thanks to helpful feedback in this forum, I cut back on my running while working through the SSBLV1. Even so, I’ve seen steady progress in my running ability.
Adaptive has been helpful to me because sometimes I have had to cut back or substitute a workout due to time constraints or when I got a cramp in the middle of a ride. That is kind of a funny weird experience getting a cramp with your shoes clipped in and realizing you just have to stop. What enjoy best is that TR’s adaptive training works with me day to day.
I’m using a Kickr V5, with a laptop running the app. I take my Garmin Fenix 6 Pro Solar along for the ride just to ensure this data is captured and calculated with my running too. I use a Polar H10 HRM. My bike is a 2020 Giant Contend AR 1. I currently have on the bike Favero Assioma Unos for when I ride outside but honestly with TR training and my own mixing in running outside, I’ve not gone on much rides at all outside.
