You can race Senior at Nationals if you have a Senior license, even if you are of Masters age. Seeing as you raced M3 last year, I would listen to the "boss" of your team and race Masters this...

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...

I just used a custom periodic chart and plugging in IF as one of the data series. I just checked it against average normalised power and it lines up. I keep a 7 day chart going with IF, hours, kJ...

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...

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.

I would drop one of the weights sessions and replace it with time on the bike. If you're doing 150w for
50', try doing 2 x 20' at ~190w, with 5' easy spinning between reps. Your HR may be in the...

You could try starting out with 3' intervals at ~113% FTP. Work your way up to eight reps in total, i.e. 2 sets of 4 x 3' on/3-5' off, with 10' easy spinning between sets. Make the intervals longer...
