MAP Ramp Test

This Test allows a more accurate prediction of FTP than the more commonly used CP20 and is less stressful on the athlete

When you cannot maintain cadence greater than 70 rpm or power falls stop the test and record your peak power at which you stopped.

Cool down and allow HR to return to around 50% of max HR before stopping.

Warm up, ramp 25w every minute. FTP 75% of MAP Result which can be calculated https://zwifthacks.com/app/map-ftp-calculator/

Sample Day 5

Cross Train

This is not an essential session; add it to your
training if you have the time.

Choose an activity to help develop all-round
fitness and flexibility.

If you already do another exercise session, structured or social, then continue to fit that into your week. If not, then maybe try something new; for example gym work, swim, jog or a fitness class.

Remember to start all new activities slowly, don’t overdo it and that gentle restorative exercise, such as Swimming, yoga or Pilates, can complement your training well.

Whatever you choose to do, it's important that it doesn't impact negatively on the quality of your training.
