Earlier today I was on a ride and listening to Mitch Docker’s podcast, Life in the Peloton (link here). He was talking to Tom Southam about the difference between trainer FTP and outside FTP.
This is a question I posted to @Jonathan this week as I certainly see a big difference between indoor trainer FTP and outdoor FTP and I was wondering how you consider this difference, which Mitch says is around 7% when loading Outdoor workouts.
Indoor I do everything on a Tacx Neo 2T and ERG mode all through TR and currently showing 270 FTP based on a ramp test that didn’t go so well 3 weeks ago.
Outdoor I use stages dual-sided Dura-ace power meter and via intervals.icu showing 325 FTP from a ride earlier this week. Having just completed English +4 yesterday and managing to hold well over the VO2Max levels I was wondering:
a. Why you don’t consider all training inputted to TR as a measure for FTP as Intervals.itu does
b. Do you add/subtract -7% on an indoor trainer vs. outside workout?
