Sample Day 3
Off Season | FTP Test | Threshold

***Field Test***
Determine your Functional Threshold Power (FTP).
1) Warm up with an easy spin for 15 minutes.

2) Set your watch/head unit to display current and normalized power then begin the 20 minute test. (start your watch/head unit)

3) For 20 minutes, the objective is to rmaximize wattage. (highest gear and high cadence you can sustain on average). Build into it gradually and don't try to get it all in a short time otherwise you'll burn out quickly.

4) At 20 minutes stop your watch/head unit and save the data. then cool down for 15 minutes at a recovery pace.

5) Update FTP and threshold heart rate, and heart rate zones in the TrainingPeaks Athlete Account Settings in the "zones" section. This will ensure your workouts will build with correct paces for the prescribed intensities.
