This plan is power based working with your specific test FTP values, so you must ensure these are set correctly. Once set just follow the progression, which is aimed at the biggest limiter in cycling - Extensive ability to ride within a power zone. Too often riders will just add power instead of adding duration which is far more improtant. This will increase your time in zone progressing from 85% to 95% efforts at varying durations. Once you complete the 8-weeks, its time to retest and reset your levels. I have had 100% success in riders achieving a higher FTP after this 8-wk block.
