The steps are as it follows:
TNT is the Technogym work out method developed by the best physiologists and trainers in the world, based on the most effective training methods for cyclists. Based on a test that identifies the anaerobic threshold, a training plan is developed, subdivided into three phases: basic, development and refining, in which the pedaling pace and power variations are designed to guarantee the improvement of all the qualities needed to improve your performance on the road.
TNT lasts a total of 18 weeks and is comprised of three phases, each lasting six weeks: Preparation, Development and Transition.
If you "skip" a TNT session because you did not have the time, you can always resume from the session you missed as soon as you can. If, on the other hand, you have substituted it with training on the road, you can move on to the next session.
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.
This training method is the one used in the Programs, Cycling Trainer and Custom sections during which you must simply follow the RPM (pace) suggested on the display. The 'resistance' of Technogym Ride is automatically changed by the equipment depending on the programme training profile.

If you choose to train at constant slope, you can change the inclination of the road as you please at any time. The resistance that you will need to overcome will therefore depend on the slope percentage that you selected and by the gear you use, just as it occurs on the road.

Once you have taken the test to identify the anaerobic threshold value (or after having entered the value manually), you can identify the training zones relative to this power. Specifically, the zones correspond to: Zone 1 (less than 55%); Zone 2 (between 56 and 75%); Zone 3 (between 76 and 90%); Zone 4 (between 91 and 105%); Zone 5 (greater than 105%).
This behavior could be caused by:
- How tightly you are wearing your watch on your wrist. Check your strap and if needed tighten it;
- Sweat might interfere with the tracking process of your heart rate device. Try to wipe some of the perspiration off. If neither of the above suggestions work, try to disconnect and reconnect your heart rate device.
