So i understand and appreciate that as you ride and the more you train your FTP increases and Zwift automatically records and saves this. So when you do training programs, these are based upon your FTP.
But what happens if you haven’t ridden in a while? Does Zwift reduce your FTP?
I am going to take one of the Zwift FTP tests, but these utilise your current FTP. Currently my highest/best FTP was 324 from a period of consistent training last year. But over past few months my riding has been on back burner and i know my FTP will not be that good. So when i do the FTP test, the warm ups, etc… prior to the actual test will be based upon percentages of this high FTP thus tiring me before the test.
A work around would be to guess a reduced FTP and manually input it to the test page to reset the percentages but then that would be a guess.
And then when I get the result of the FTP test, do I have to manually override previous FTP?
Does anyone have any comment on FTP, it is an index that fluctuates with our training intensity so it has to go and and down. How does the down work in Zwift?
