Workouts ramps


Is there an easy way to create a workout with power increase every second with 1W or something like that?

I want to make intervals where it ramps up every second and i dont want to add every second as a step.

Unfortunately, we don’t have in our Workout Designer at this time. It is something we are considering.

I’m a new user, and I would really like this feature (ramp interval).
Continue your good work, I really think your system is the future of training standard.

What type of ramp interval do you want to do?
Have you tried riding in resistance or slope mode to emulate a RAMP test?

I was thinking of Warming up, cooling down and over/under like the workout below.
I never really tried resistance or slope mode, but I don’t think it’s gonna replace ramp ?

BTW, it’s only a nice to have. I’m used to these kind of WO and I would like to replicate them without having to split the ramp into smaller steps !


From ErgDB:

That is a typical ERG workout with a ramp-like warm-up.
Search workouts for “ramp” and you’ll see a true ramp test. However, it’s a 5 star/diamond workout and may start too high for you (150 watts),
You can emulate a similar ramp test on your own in resistance mode. Start an activity at a reasonably easy pace and lower cadence at the watt level you are comfortable with for warm-up, then “ramp” up your cadence every minute or so which will also raise watts. Continue until you can’t go faster/higher for another minute. The pain will be too much.
On the other hand Xert doesn’t need you to do painful periodic RAMP tests to determine FTP/TP. Just select a “breakthrough” workout once a month or so and your fitness signature will update accordingly if changes apply.

I think you don’t understand me.
I’m not talking about ramp test, but intervals that goes from 95% ftp to 105% ftp for example.
Why do you think 150w is too much for me ?

What you are describing is an over/under workout, not a ramp workout…
Select Workouts on left side menu at xertonline, enter “over/under” in search box and select a workout.
If you want to see why 150 “may” be too high to start a ramp test, search for “ramp”, select Ramp Test #1 and try it. You’ll see what I mean. If you can’t comfortably warm up for 10-15 minutes the starting watts were too high.
A ramp test continuously increases in intensity until failure.
Other types of ramp workouts are less intense (% FTP) and repeat intervals.

Slope Segments:

Yes, thank you for the update !!!
