I did the FTP test earlier this week, and it yielded an FTP of 207W, quite similar to my “real world” road test result of 210W. Today I logged on and selected the FTP Builder Day 1 workout, which turned out to be
10min warm up
5 sets of 4min intervals at 145W, with 2min rest at 110W in between
10 minutes warm down.
Since 145W is approximately 70% of my FTP, and since 4 minutes is a very short period of time, I am not sure if I’ve done something wrong (was I supposed to fill in a form somewhere with my FTP test results, or does the app know it?), or whether there is a calculation error somewhere in the program formatting the workouts to each individual rider.
All in all, I find the workout format quite engaging, and I like the stargate like arcs marking each interval. It is a fantastic concept … but in terms of the “numbers” part of the experience, something seems to be missing.
Please let me know if I am the one missing the something !
Thanks for creating this neat new training aid,
