I’m on the road back from A Fib and an ablation, I am wanting to slowly work training back up, and have the backing of my cardioligist.
So far I’ve been keeping my HR under 120bpm, but now have the all clear to start to increase that.
So I really don’t want to do any max HR work for the next 3 months, so won’t be doing a ramp test in the near future.
Do folk think TR would work if I created a low FTP and trained off that? I did a ride Wed to test things out of 3x5min @ 200w and my heart reached 151 bpm which is about the max I’d want to go.
So thinking I could set my FTP to 190 in TR and see how my HR goes following a low volume base program, or maybe the low vol Triathlon program (as I was doing triathlon before).
I’d then have to adjust the FTP manually if I found my HR was increasing above the limits, but could also start to creep it up monthly as I raise my limit.
Can anyone see any issues with using it this way?
