I did the Boswell Strength Endurance workout today. I liked the idea of the low cadence strength workout. It didn’t particularly tax me though and as I was doing the workout, I was listening to Boswell’s breathing to see how we matched up. I was definitely having an easier time of things. So I knocked it up to just under FTP level ( I think by about 115%) and it felt better but still not what I would call particularly hard. I was hesitant to put it up any more as the effort was rated as 6. Question is - what should these workouts feel like? If it was outside and you told me do go low cadence up a climb for 4 minutes to work on strength, I would have pushed harder (but maybe that wouldn’t be as productive?) Trying to understand to make sure I use my time to cause the right amount of pain to make me stronger
FYI. I’m 47 and FTP is around 235 with MAP around 295 (planning to remeasure after a week off next week).
