FTP

Wednesday March 19, 2014 at 3:38pm
I did my first FTP of the year yesterday.  This is functional threshold power and determines your power training zones on the bike.  Needless to say after a winter with not too much biking I have some serious work to do to be ready for the season ahead.
FTP represents the power you can sustain for one hour.  It is also referred to as CP60 (critical power)
There are several methods of testing FTP.  The two most common are a 20 minute maximum power test and a RAMP test.  If you don't have or can't afford power youi can do this test and then a further test can determine your heart rate (HR) for each zone.
