Zwift Workout Ramp

Just completed “Say It Ain’t So” workout on Zwift - worked well but there were sections of 2-3min ramps - power on Zwift started at 90W and then increased to 100w over the ramp duration. Were these actual power targets or were they actually a way of displaying %FTP or similar? Thanks

Hi Russell,

The intervals you’re referring to are XSSR (Xert Strain Score per Hour) intervals - in that workout, they’re used as a recovery interval. They’re not actually ramps (since they’re non-linear), but only the Xert players can handle non-linear intervals, so when these intervals are exported into a ZWO, they are simply exported as regular ramps. That is totally normal. Cheers
