I am fairly new to Trainer Road and cycling.
Purchased my bike and smart trainer during the last week of May 2020. I had not been on a bike for at least 10 years. and not much cardio has been done in the past 3 years. 95% of my time was spent bodybuilding. I used to be an elite high jumper / sprinter / explosive athlete during my college years.
I’ve hit approximately 1400W for a few seconds, seated, while messing around on zwift in july. No idea what my peak sprint power would be. Maybe 1900.
Completed my first ramp test on zwift on June 1st: 198W at 85kg
First ramp test with TR on June 3rd: 201W at 85kg.
Completed 4 weeks of SSBHV , then took a week off the bike.
Ramp test done on July 15th: 246W at 83kg.
Rode mostly outside for 2 weeks.
Start of SSBHV 2 on July 27th : 252W.
My ramp test today, before starting the build phase put me at 275W at 83kg.
My progression since may : 198–>201–>246–>252–>275.
+77 watts in 15 weeks.
I am a lean 83kg. Clear definition of my abs. The goal is to reach 400W or 5.5W/KG at 78kg.
I will begin the build phase tomorrow. I have not decided if I will of with the sustained power build or the short power build.
