Sample Day 3

Test: FTP / MMP / LTHR

20 Min FTP test
No eating 1 hour before
No stimulants / supplements before

Sample Day 3

Test: FTP / MMP / LTHR (no powermeter)

20 Min test to determine FTP.
Your goal is to maintain the highest possible average power output for the 20 minutes.
Don't start too hard and blow up after 4 or 5 minutes with a drop in power and then an all out effort for the last 2 or 3 minutes with a 'sprint' to the end. A consistent power output will provide a realistic indication of what you are capable of producing for a full hour.
Workout steps are a guide and will result in a slightly higher FTP, but the goal is to go as hard as possible in order to get a true value for your FTP.
