Week 3 of On/off season training. I do most workouts on trainer (Peloton). I’ve completed my FTP test (10pt improvement over last time) and have my zones setup. During my workouts I am able to hold my sweet spot intervals well below threshold HR. For example: My threshold HR is 161 (i’m 47 y/o) and when doing SSI at 261w the HR is 140’s and I don’t fell all that stressed. I could produce more. Furthermore, during tempo my HR is really low, 130’s. FTP 284. I’m under my TSS recommendation consistently because I am only able to transfer HR to training peaks which gives me hrTSS due to lame proprietary BS from Peloton. FTFP? probably
During Muscle Tension is the recovery period between intervals at normal cadence of 85-95 or do i continue the low cadence but at the lower output?
last question: Is there a benefit to Zone 2/endurance workouts using variable cadence or should I just hang out where I am comfortable (90ish per minute)?
thanks. You guys rock.
