I’m new to training with power but I have been an athlete all my life. I went to do the Half-Monty test for FTP numbers for training zones, but noticed once in the test that my profile had my FTP set for 150w. After doing a few pre-test rides to test the app, etc. I knew my FTP is well over 150w. I did the test anyway and the warm-up/cool down power pre-sets were way too low and I got an email after saying all my results were null because I didn’t hit the power zones properly.
Is there any other way to estimate an FTP prior to a test so the ramps will increase at lease somewhat appropriately to my fitness level?
