FTP Test er litt som din “high score” i et spill – men her vinner du faktisk noe!

As is the case with most games, you need to earn Your way to the top.

In any sport the same rule apply – talent alone only provide you with a head start.

FTP: Functional Threshold Power (FTP) is a measure of how hard you can ride for an hour – but the test can be done in less time.

First of all, let’s address the elephant in the room. FTP tests are unpleasant. Very unpleasant. Imagine hell and double it. Done properly, you will feel sick. Light-headed. Limbs will tremble. If you’re enjoying an FTP test you’re doing it wrong.

FTP tests are designed to push you to your limits. Be it the full on 60 minute test, the more manageable 20 minute version or the increasingly popular time crunched 8 minute test (Remember the 8 minute and 20 minute test are likely to inflate your FTP score. So don’t get too excited if your Watts/KG is really high unless you know for a fact you could actually sustain this for an hour.)

Benefit: Once done, and done correct, you will have a point of origin from where you can aim at improving Your FTP. The obsession begins in getting a higher “game score / level”.

Outcome: You win in real life and you will feel the progress materialize itself in many ways.

Book an hour to get you set on whatever Your “in real life” goal is.
