I have notice that the training program I have done for short power build has a rate at which the TSS increases every week. from reading other parts of the forum i am using a web site called intervals.icu this monitors the the TSS and recovery as well as a whole host of other good stuff.
i am 48 years old been riding for 6 years seriously racing crits for 2 years this year. i want to grow my FTP while I can and hopefully beat the looming over 50s tipping point!
how hard must i go for the next couple years? My current RR is around 3.5 but i think this is elevated due to the reduced fatigue of not have to go do my work. i am preparing for our club champs in September so i want to stay on this trajectory to September. My best FTP was 309w last year at a weight of 83kg before an accident on the bike my FTP at the moment is 283 and hopefully growing again however my weight is 89kg which is not ideal.
Please help[ with some advise.
