Recently joined zwift with a Strava estimated FTP of 156W and after 3 weeks group rides and races zwift calculated it at 204W. 4 days of rest and then an FTP ramp test estimated it at 225W (I am 67 kg).
I’ve not done any structured training before so started on the 6 week beginner FTP programme. Because why not. I’ve done a bit of cycling and triathlons, but nothing with a power meter or FTP related.
Currently on the first week (a tempo, foundation and strength session done) and so far it has felt pretty easy tbh.
I’m going to stick with it, as it does look like it ramps up later (and swap one of the foundations in the early week for some MTBing or a race if I’m feeling flush with energy).
Let’s see how it goes. (I’m not overly worried about another test at the end as well aware that I’ve I my ever done one test).
