My Threshold power is 190 and my LowerThreshold power is 136, I’m finding my workouts very easy. is there a way I can test if this is correct? I did a ramp test on Friday and got an FTP of 225.
Do a Xert breakthrough workout (search the library) in slope mode (not erg / auto, even if the description suggests it), and make sure
- you truly go to failure (so extend the interval or ride harder than suggested for the last interval in each block - an advantage of slope mode)
- you also include an all-out sprint at some point (to get an accurate peak power). Can be a separate workout as it’s easiest when fresh / start of a workout
You don’t strictly need to do a breakthrough workout, but they are good at making sure you draw down MPA over a sufficient time period e.g. 10 min or so. I like v3, or just a Ronnestad workout trying to exceed each interval by 10 to 20%
You can also check your signature vs ‘norms’ here to get a sense whether relativity really are ok.
Thanks, Wesley, I did the workout you recommended and it has brought the Threshold and Lower threshold up.
