FTP 'free ride' mode with neot2

Both times I have tried to do the Method session in the FTP builder workout program I have been unable to do the spin up part.
I am riding with NeoT2 trainer.
When I try to do the spinups the watts go thru the roof (300 + ) and of course I cant spin.
The program should be set to a specific load rather than free ride…
Very disappointing to not be able follow program

You can adjust the resistance in the free ride block. Use the incline buttons on the companion app or the on screen arrows or ± on your keyboard
