Got my stages sb20 mid december so now have been training a little over 2 weeks. prior to this i’ve got about 25 years of fairly regular outdoor riding but nothing organized. so i took the hm last week and got an ftp of 140. followed the guide lines but certainly felt like i could push a bit harder. so another couple of weeks i’ll do the hm again now that understand the process better.
just finished doing revolver for the second time. during the intervals revolver wanted me to do 175 watts at 100 rpm. holding at 175 watts, i’m around 85 rpm. holding at 100 rpm, i’m doing 200+ watts.
my thinking is to match the rpm as long as i can do this for most all the intervals. It means to me that my ftp is probably higher than 140. this should maximize my training. does this make sense?
