If you determine your average power for the last 2 minutes of the test, and multiply by 0.85 (IIRC that's the percentage for this ramp rate), you will have a good estimate of your functional...

If you are 19-35 you have to start as a Senior 4, or Elite 4. The system is similar, except there are 4 cats instead of 5 for elite men, and 3 cats for masters men. If you are 35 or older, you can...

To illustrate your point, I had an average IF of .859 (AP 82% FTP) for January through February 2008 (including warm-up, cool-down and recovery intervals). All sweet spot.

Too little. You should aim to do 8-10 hours per week on the trainer, with 1 or 2 days off. Keep in mind that 2 hours at just 70-75% of your FTP gives a TSS (training stress score) about equal to 1...

Assuming these were in the L5 range, you may want to do your recoveries at ~140w. Also you should see if you can place a fan in front of yourself, and you may want to use a sports drink to keep the...

Your workout has an AP of 125% FTP :eek:, whereas the other example (assuming a 345-350 w FTP) has an AP of 92.5% FTP. I like the 150/50 approach. I consider these as L4 workouts.

That is 6000-10000 calories consumed per day, not burned during a stage. Floyd Landis averaged 281 w for 5:23 on his Stage 17 epic ride in 2006 . That is just over 1000 kJ/hour.

spin easy for 5'

I would drop one of the weights sessions and replace it with time on the bike. If you're doing 150w for
