Just joined Zwift and have embarked upon the “6wk Beginner FTP Builder”. My problem is that after 2 days I’m finding myself confused. If I keep to the prescribed watts it’s not very challenging unless I drop to a low gear and crank up the cadence to 100. (It appears my FTP is 76) So I’m being set targets of 55w for 10 mins. Is it better to try to achieve the targets in a low gear with higher cadence or a high gear with lower cadence? Or, as I suspect my FTP is too low.
New at this and only ride to try and increase my likelihood of seeing my pension. I’m in my mid 50’s 13 stone and 5 foot 8!
