The purpose of the Technogym FTP test is to calculate your FTP threshold.Knowing your FTP is extremely fundamental, as it can accurately assess your current level of athlete. The core of the test is structured in a 20 min time trial. You will be asked to maintain a pace of about 75% of your power for the first 16 minutes, and then give it your all for the last 4 minutes. Before doing your test, it is advisable to warm up for at least 10 minutes, while at the same time, at the end of your test, we suggest you to do a 10 minutes cooldown. This will maximize your overall performance and will let you pass the test without any kind of injury. Please keep in mind that the original FTP protocol developed by Allen & Coggan would require one hour and a half to perform the entire procedure, with all the warmup and cooldown. Considering that the test should be taken within a class context we decided to reduce the timing of the warmup and cooldown to stay within a 45-minute threshold.
The goal of the Technogym Maximal test is to calculate the values corresponding to the anaerobic threshold (watts and heart rate). The test is an incremental type and it ends when the subject has reached maximum effort and therefore cannot proceed further with the test. It should be noted that, by its very nature as a maximal fatigue test, you must have prior approval from your doctor.
The constant pulse rate training method is focused on BPM (heart beats per minute).
You pick your goal among time, distance and calories and then, you can select the heartbeat intensity that will be your target during the whole workout.
Heart rate trainings help you to optimize your effort and improve your cycling performances.
(For this training method it's mandatory to use an heart rate monitor)
