Here is my issue. I started the FTP Builder 6 week beginner program. I am not a complete newbie but I am still fairly new to competitive cycling. My issue is that I don’t think there is enough information either on screen or in the actual workout mode description when you choose the workout/ride.
I will give you an example. So first the warm up says 100 watts for like the first 4 minutes. Am I supposed to do 100 watts at 70rpm or 90 rpm or 100+ rpm? I see when you are in the harder efforts of the ride it says 90-100 cadence for whatever the wattage is. Then sometimes it even says what the cadence should be for the recovery interval.
I would like it if there was a bit more information on the screen describing what it is you are trying to accomplish at that moment in the workout. Heck I would even be happy if it said somewhere when you were selecting the workout what the description of what should happen during the ride.I think that all of the plans when you decide to pick a workout are lacking in explanation in terms of goals to be met. I think I just feel that if I am to follow a plan I shouldn’t be wondering the whole ride if I am doing it properly. The point of following a plan is to produce the intended results while following instructions from another entity. I just feel there is a pretty big information gap missing as a rider.
Am I the only one with this issue?
