  • Zone 2 -FTP 55-74%  
  • Zone3 - FTP 75-89% 
  • Zone4- FTP 90-104% 
  • Zone 5 - FTP 105-120%

  • Zone 1 Less than 81% 
  • Zone 2 81% to 89% 
  • Zone 3 90% to 93% 
  • Zone 4 94% to 99%

First ride, Zone test. We will be performing two hard efforts up to the 8-minute intervals. If you miss the testing ride please come to the next class with your Zones by following the below protocol:

  1. Warmup ride 10-15 minutes
  2. 1-minute hard effort 
  3. 2-minute easy 
  4. 1-minute hard effort
  5. 3-minute easy
  6. Set the bike computer to capture test 1
    1. 8-minute hard effort as fast as you can hold your power with a consistency pedal cadence 
    2. Records your data average heart rate, average power
    3. 10-minute easy recovery
  7. Set the bike computer to capture test 2
    1. 8-minute hard effort as fast as you can hold your power with a consistency pedal cadence 
    2. Records your data average heart rate, average power
    3. 10-minute easy recovery 
  8. Take both readings
    1. Lactic Threshold Heart Rate Zones
      1. Add the averages of Heart rate test 1 and heart rate test 2 divide them by 2 to obtain your average heart rate for the two tests
      2. Take your average heart rate for the two tests is your Lactic Threshold Heart Rate (LTHR) of Zone 4 at 100%, populate your zones respectively on a piece of paper  
    2. Functional Threshold Power (FTP) zone
      1. Add the averages power test 1 and power test 2 divide them by 2 to obtain your average power for the two tests
      2. Take your average power for the two tests is your Functional Threshold Power (FTP) and times this number by .9 is your Zone 4 at 100%, populate your zones respectively on a piece of paper
