I have checked in the help section, and I see a red box to click on, to offer me an estimated FTP on the ramp test .
When I open the ramp test, this red box does not appear.
I have downloaded the latest version of the app, so I was expecting it to be ok.
I’ve now missed the ramp test, as had a race, and am too tired to do it in the old fashioned way!
What could be the problem?
Has anyone else had this ?
So I will need to cancel my current training plan, and re start it say,next Tuesday. So I get the ramp test programmed.
I have a bad habit of not doing my training rides n the days they are programmed.eg. this week I did yesterdays vo2 max workout today, because i needed an extra recovery day after a race on sunday.
Sounds like thats why it didnt work,as i tried to do the ramp test 3 days after it was programmed
You can manually add a Ramp Test to any day that you would like to use the FTP Detection tool. So there is no need to redo an entire training plan just for that purpose.
As to your altered schedule, it is probably best to drag and drop the workouts around on your calendar to match your actual workout completion. It’s quite easy on the web in particular, but also possible to do in the app.
I dropped and dragged the ramp test onto my calender for yesterday, and i was able to use the FTP detection option, and my Ftp had gone up by 4w. Sort of what I expected and means my workouts will be hard but achievable.
I will also do the ramp test, as i am fascinated to see how it compares with the estimated version. If not tired ,I tend to produce a too high FTP on the ramp test, which suggests i should do the 20 minute test instead.
