Watts Doc #14: Effective FTP Training
In this highly anticipated episode, a scientific paper and some metabolic logic show us a simple, effective way to make your FTP training better.
Training effect on performance, substrate balance and blood lactate concentration at maximal lactate steady state in master endurance-runners

vMLSS 85% of vVO2max is not atypical in trained runners, whereas trained cyclist are around 80% and below when comparing work rate @ MLSS and work rate @VO2max. A runner, running @FTP or @ MLSS, might be working @ 85% of VO2max, while a cyclist cycling @FTP or @ MLSS, might be working @ only 80% of VO2max. The proximity of vMLSS to vVO2max in this runner group might explain why an improvement in VO2max was seen in the linked Billat et al study, while in cycling studies, no statistically significant improvement in VO2max has been reported with training at FTP or MLSS.
