FTP/ lactate threshold testing
Good to have some facts, when you want to get ahead with your training.
What facts? For example your current level of fitness, its related training zones and your development.
How to get this done? Monitoring.
Most common way to get this done (not only for pro-rider) is through performance analysis, performed as a lactate threshold test or FTP test. You get a indication about your current fitness, a temporary guide to point out your personal training zones and you can point out what to focus on during the next weeks. As it comes to your performance development, you can compare previously test with each other and get precise facts for adaptation. Important to do such tests in this early phase of the training cyclus, to ensure not to ride too fast or slow, not too little nor too much.
