You already know this, there isn’t a single correct answer. Personally I’ve seen different power gains with same FTP and same plan.
Folks have already commented you would likely benefit from different stimulus for this block. If it was me, most likely would do general or short build and toss in a 2 hour ride (1 hour threshold + 1 hour tempo) on the weekend. Going off my best season, I’d actually do two of those a week on 2/1 week blocks.
Back on the periodization topic, even though your last post strongly signaled you want to shut down that thread of conversation:
This isn’t semantics, look at your latest TSS chart:
That is 6 weeks of work starting the last week of November.
Here is a typical periodized schedule for a 4 week block:
- overload week1
- overload week2 with more TSS
- overload week3 with even more TSS
- adaptation week by dropping weekly TSS by at least 50%
And your current plan going forward has 7 weeks without a real adaptation week:
My biggest gains in FTP actually came from super overload - averaging something like 500-600 TSS work weeks and tossing in a 800-900 work week (century) - coupled with periodizing cycles of 2 weeks on / 1 week adaptation (low TSS or not riding at all). Why 2/1? Didn’t feel like I needed 2/1 because my body could handle it, the 2/1 happened because I travel for work. And then later I looked at data and realized I had fallen into a 2/1, and the extra adaptation weeks appear to have pushed my FTP higher. My 2 cents FWIW.
I listened to an interesting podcast on Sunday driving home from a race, if you haven’t heard it, worth a listen:
