In the fall I took my ftp using the ramp test, gave it all I got and got a record high for me of 247.
After this, I repeatedly failed workouts, decreased intensity, backspun etc and ultimately got frustrated that each workout was to failure. I took a break and did 2-3 sweet spot workouts a week on zwift.
I’m back at it, and decided to take the 20minute test last monday. got an FTP of 208 with a good effort. I did the first week of sweet spot base 1
Today I decided to try the ramp test again to compare. I got a FTP of 224. I feel I could have pushed a touch more as well. Gave up rather quick once I hit 21 minutes.
Which FTP would you use? I really want to push my fitness up over the winter and am focusing on the bike.
