I’ve got a question about FTP testing. I like the 20 minute method instead of the ramp method but I hate having to focus on keeping my power up constantly.
I’m wondering if I could just set up a workout for 20 minutes at what I believe would be my new max FTP, then do that workout in ERG mode, and Zwift would automatically capture the result as my new FTP.
So, for example, I could create a workout with a warmup, then 20 minutes at 280 (higher than my current 20 minute CP) and then try to work it to get a higher FTP outcome. Would Zwift register my new FTP from this?
I also think this method would be really accurate because I wouldn’t have to deal with spikes in watts that might get slightly more fatigued.
Thanks for any help here.
