Sample Day 1

Fitness Test: FTP and Threshold HR

This fitness test helps you to set your power or heart rate thresholds for Training Peaks.

Warm Up:
12 mins in Z2,
5 x (15 secs in Z4 + 45 secs easy in Z2).

Main Set:
20 mins maximal steady state time trial. Go as hard as you can sustain for 20-minutes.

Warm Down:
5 mins in Z2.

Note: Alternatively, if you have a bike training device with its own "FTP" test protocol, you could use that instead.

TIP: Have a fan and/or air conditioning, so that heat stress is not a limiting factor for this test.
