After completing the FTP Test (shorter) with an FTP of 177w some weeks ago I started the Dirt Destroyer Plan with said FTP for some MTB specific stimuli.
Within the first week of the plan I had to manually increase my set FTP up to 220w to feel any exertion at all. I’m now at the end of week 5 of the plan and I’m still running pretty good with 220w.
I’m just curious: Why is there a gap of nearly 23 % between my tested FTP and the one I’m using right now quite comfortable? Am I overdoing it? Aren’t plans designed to go full effort but rather low to medium effort?
I’m using Tacx Neo Smart Trainer with ERG Mode on.
Thanks for your thoughts on this.
