@hollandgdavid I would think so as well, but then again in most threads I see there is the always repeated mantra that it is in fact the Build Phase that gives best results. Not sure whether it is just something people keep on repeating without actually checking the data, or whether in fact there is some merit to it.
Oddly enough as @mcneese.chad pointed out, even coach Chad stated that it is not Build but Base where most people see best results. So not sure why people keep on telling that line. The above vote does go into that direction as well (by a small ish degree but still).
I’m kind of curious now whether the best way to approach maximizing one’s gains is to maybe do 2 full blocks of SSB back to back, then go into Build and beyond
@pcort but then again is reestablishing gains actual gains? If my ftp last season was 315 and over the winter it dropped to 302, then now after reaching 320 are my gains only 5 watts (from my best 315 last season) or 18 watts (as the start for this year was 302)?
