I’m wondering if doing the Full Frontal 4DP test before taking adequate rest will impact performance on the test and by how much. Following up on that question, what would be the best course of action:
#1. Take enough rest this week and re-do the test
#2. Proceed with the all-purpose road plan as scheduled
I did the test last Wednesday after two solid rest days after a training block of 3 weeks. A previous FTP test (Zwift, September) had me at 214 and I’ve continued riding and training since. The FTP result from the 4DP test was 212 (all my other values were up though!)
It would be possible my FTP is just down from riding a bit more base miles, or due to insufficient rest before the rest. Would love some feedback before making mistakes regarding my training plans.
