And not as in HAHA funny but really a bit of a joke. I did the 4 week FTP booster and the last day is, yes, an FTP test which is good since I would be interested to see any increase/decline. Well I spend the > hour to do the test and during the actual FTP part (20 minutes) I keep the power above what I know my current FTP is. Weeeeelllll above so I’m really chuffed giving some extra motivation for the last few minutes, except…
a) I get NO feedback at the end except for the normal workout completion. I was expecting some sort of comparison between my condition at the start of the program and the end.
b) Since it did not say my FTP improved I would only assume that it did not. Looking at the workout afterward it indicates a WELL below my previous FTP performance. Somewhere in the region of <25%. This is true only if you take the warmup and cooldown periods into consideration as most of this is 50% or less of the current FTP. I know for a fact that I never once dipped below the current FTP, staying at least 10-20W above it, yet the end result is ~80W below.
While I know I’m stronger than before the start of the 4 week program the feedback at the end is very disappointing, and that is being kind!
