Alternative to an FTP


(Wayne Auton) #1

Is there an alternative to an FTP? Like the Sufferfest Full Frontal ?
Does the Zwift FTP work out more than just your 1 hour threshold ?

FTP is not a Zwift thing, it has been a standard long before Zwift.

VO2 max another good metric. It really depends on what you are training for. FTP has little bearing on my training.

Trainerroad has a new ramp test that gives you pretty much the same result as a 20 minute FTP test. Removes a few variables like going out too hard. You just have to go really hard the last couple of minutes until you can no longer hold the power. It’s now my new way of FTP testing.
