What is FTP?
Functional Threshold Power. In over-simplified terms this is the level of pedaling effort at which your legs start to burn. In less simplified terms it is the level of effort you would theoretically be able to hold for an hours. In even less simplified terms it is when you switch from your aerobic energy systems to your anaerobic systems. Power is measured in Watts, like a light bulb. The trainers at VCS measure and read out your pedaling wattage.
Once you establish your FTP, you can base all your workout efforts on a percentage of your FTP. A workout at VCS might be something like
- 10 Minute Warmup at 50% of FTP
- 1 minute interval at 110% of FTP
- 30 second rest at 75% of FTP
- and so on and so forth.
This way everyone gets the same workout and the differences in fitness among the cyclists are no longer an issue!
