Just to make everyone feel good about themselves.

182cm
96kg/211lb
FTP about 300 (based on 105% of what Strava tells me for 20min, so possibly wayyyy out)

I blame it on moving house 4 times in the last 4 years and not having more than one free weekend a month since 2010.

My ftp is somewhat uncertain as my Srm has a flat battery and is heading for service. Guesstimate is somewhere around 360W.


Aug 29 ^^

Now about 76-77 kilos, SRM back in business, haven't done any max effort 20 minutes yet... Dreading those tests, and the weather lately has been too bad :-)
However the dropoff in my CP-curve suggests FTP somewhere between 350 and 360W. Given that we're in off season and I've cut somewhat back on training and, not to mention, structured training, I'm hoping the FTP might have been somewhat higher in July/August when I was in my best shape ever.

Seen pictures of myself and thought I look like a 10-year old schoolboy ;)

Calisthenics and more food. Inspired by those guys

Its noticeable on steep climbs. But otherwise, I actually feel more powerful.

I'm actually hoping to gain some weight this year, but hopefully not bodyfat. I think chronic undereating was stunting my power before as I lost a considerable amount of top end and my FTP didn't improve at a lower bodyweight.

Last year I was 75kg with a peak FTP of 340-350, but this year I'd be fine with being around 77-79kg if the power is there. There are no sustained climbs in races where I live and even then if my FTP were closer to 375 I'd still be at 4.7-4.8 w/kg which is more than enough for my level (because people are often stupid).

im at 68kg right now

going into the off season with a pretty intense programme, lots of L6-L4 and lifting, might gain a bit of weight, I dont mind either as long as I climb as fast as I did before and my w/kg improves or at least doesnt drop.

Racing xco mtb events.

I have had the flu .I have been eating lots of nice stuff on and off for 2 weeks and feel lousy . Back on the good food . Eating a lot of bad food really does slow you down .
