Lessons learned and still learning. About me, I’m a roller guy, just starting to use power, haven’t competed in many many years, just got first smart trainer, Elite Suito, use Garmin 245 watch for heart rate, on 2014 Trek Domane. All connected via Bluetooth on Windows
What I learned so far:
*Warm up the trainer then calibrate
*Don’t just do FTP test and expect good results. Get familiar with new sensations.
*Pick one gear you’re comfortable with while doing FTP test/4 week FTP training. Let ERG do it’s thing
*Keep cadence up and a few seconds before power load increase, bump up cadence.
Do you calibrate each ride? Or use other tools to calibrate? I assume if I’m using zwift then calibrate via zwift spin down
After FTP ramp up test and 3 days of FTP training, I’m beginning to get it. I’m sure I’ll learn more each ride.
