    TSS/hr

    How much TSS per hour do you guys usually rack up, on average, over a week's worth of rides? Including any recovery, etc...

    400/500 TSS PER HOUR?!

    you're doing it wrong.

    edit: ok umd your OP is confusing. The title asks TSS/hr, the post asks TSS/wk. Which is it?

    100 tss in 1 hour = FTP ride

    exactly... so rides are probably going to be between .7 and 1.0 IF... but rarely at the far ends of that spectrum.

    +1. Not all TSS are created equal.

    I guess so, but the title asked TSS/Hour. Anyway, I was just poking fun. Right now my weekly is about 650-750, which comes to about 54 per hour.

    Guys, you are making it more difficult than it has to be. Total TSS for the week divided by total hours per the week. I'm not trying to start a pissing match, I'm just trying to see where my average intensity falls in the spectrum. I've been riding less overall, and doing higher quality workouts and my average TSS/hr has gone up.

    Nothing nefarious here, just curious.

    I'm doing a hell of a lot of strength work and running. Not nearly as much riding. I have seen there are threads about estimating TSS and IF for those activities, but haven't made myself familiar....

    ...so ...just riding....form my short experience with power and TSS I am seeing that I have averaging out at an intensity factor in the .8-.9 range. I am doing a lot of threshold intervals and indoor TT's so i usually have at least one ride per week that is slightly over IF of 1.0

    If it's not threshold it's recovery right now.....so no telling where I will end up.

    because of the amount of other time I spend in the gym my total TSS for the week (only bike) is about 300-ish at best. My time split is about 60% riding 40% gym right now....

    No, ATL is TSS/day. It's still a measure of volume. I'm just curious about intensity. More like average IF.

    The FAQ on trainingpeaks.com says between 50-75 TSS/hr is "the norm". I'm currently at 51.3 since Oct (end of last season to now and mostly base). Last season all-in I was 65/hr.

    Its so sad to see an entire season reduced to 2 data points in a graph. Two very painful, very lonely data points in a very sad, very empty graph...

    That's inclusive of all riding, including warm-up, cool down, etc or just the work intervals? Not saying that's wrong, just wondering. I seemed to be at .8 (exactly) last year including racing and everything.
