Plan Description

Dear Athlete,

This plan is designed as a two-week preparation for completing your first Functional Threshold Power test on a bicycle. This is great for riders coming back to training or new riders that want to test their output or set a baseline.

It is designed for riders who are capable of riding continuously for at least an hour and have a method of calculating power(onboard meter, trainer, or virtual power).

This plan requires that you set an FTP value in your training peaks account. If you have not already estimated and set a starter FTP, please contact me so we can get that done.

Notes:
*If you have never trained with power before, please contact me before purchasing this plan so that we can get you the best solution for your goals, experience, and available equipment.
*This plan includes the FTP test on Day 15 so TrainingPeaks describes it as a 3-week plan.


Cheers,
Patrick
