Good day all,
New here & new rider since June’20, yup part of the new revolution! I’ve been riding/training via HR but have really only been doing any type of training since late November since we’ve been forced to ride inside here in Toronto due to weather. I’ve been primarily doing 10-12hrs/wk in Zone 2 on the rollers. Just got a power meter 2 weeks ago so I figure with almost 3months of base under me it only made sense to step up to a more structured format. That being said I’ve signed up for the 18 week SS program which I begin this week. Excited to get going so I’ve been reading over the workout sessions as well as all the notes. I’ve done a search through the forums but unable to find the answer. My question is I notice in the warm up for the FTP test as well as the workouts there’s already targeted power zones, when warming up for the FTP test should I adhere to those power zones even though we don’t know my FTP? And secondly, the workouts following the FTP are those warm up power targets a representation of a percentage and will change once I get my FTP and HR and will automatically adjust once I input in to TrainingPeaks?
