5 Week FTP Builder
Overview: This Training Plan runs for a total of 5 weeks and has the main goal of boosting your FTP. Your functional threshold power is the maximum power output you can sustain for about 60 minutes. This value is then used to establish your training zones. There are multiple ways to measure this from the ramp test, 60 minute time trial, or the HunterAllen/Coggan 20 minute test. The coaches at IREP athletics like to prescribe the 20 minute test for most athletes as it gives a more accurate picture for calculating your training zones. There will be an initial test on day oneand then the same test at the end of the 5 weeks. One thing you need to ensure is consistency between tests. Control as many of the variables as possible. For example, perform your test on atrainer with a high powered fan. Ensure that the setup is the same on both tests. At the end of the 5 weeks you should see a nice bump in the average power for the 20 minute timed section.The goals of this program are: Increased average power for the FTP test, Improved anaerobic capacity
