Boost your FTP in 6 weeks. You will gain an extra 10-30 watts using this plan and will easily fit it in amongst your swim and run sessions.

This plan not only works on your threshold but includes sessions to boost your VO2 max power which in turns lifts your FTP. So you will come away with a larger FTP and VO2 max.

Each week contains 2 weekday sessions that can be done on the road and are also able to be downloaded in erg or other format for your smart trainer or bike computer.

Each weekend contains a longer endurance session to do out on the road. There is scope to do extra riding on top of these workouts. We suggest these rides be predominantly zone 2 so as to get aerobic benefits without inhibiting your performance for the planned sessions.

You will need an active Training Peaks account to use this plan. You can sing up for free when you checkout.

If you have any problems or have questions along the way you can email powerlab@fitpeople.com.au at any time though out the training. If you would like to check us out first for peace of mind please visit www.powerlab.com.au

Sample Day 1

40TSS
FTP test and cool down

FTP test

20 mins to achieve highest possible average power.

Pace it smart by holding back a little for the first 5 minutes. Then gradually build in to what you can only just sustain until 15 minutes. Then empty out everything you have in the final 5 minutes.

Make sure you press lap on your computer at the start and a few seconds after the finish of the test.
Cool down very easy for 10 minutes.

Your FTP will be 95% of your best 20 minute average power.

Enter this new FTP into your power training zones in training peaks and press save. All training will be based on this FTP value.
