1.77 @ 70kg - 28 years old.

5s - 984w (14.06)
1m - 455w (6.50)
5m - 308w (4.40)
20m - 262w (3.74)
FTP - 249w (3.56)

All recorded on my turbo (Tacx Neo).

Hoping to increase all numbers this winter, along with dropping a bit more weight (68kg would be perfect).
I'd like my FTP to be up around 280w, 5 min around 350w, 1 min around 500/520w and my 5s to be over 1000w.
1.77 @ 69kg - 28 years old.

5s - 984w (14.26 W/Kg)
1m - 506w (7.33 W/Kg)
5m - 308w (4.46 W/Kg)
20m - 269w (3.90 W/Kg)
FTP - 256w (3.71 W/Kg)

Been back on the turbo for around a month and managed to get some properly measured durations whilst doing the Zwift Academy.
I suspect my 5min and 20min (FTP) have all increased over what's above. I held 322w over 4 mins without too much hassle and managed to drop about 1kg at the same time.

Once I've finished the Academy, I'll do a ramp, FTP test or the Sufferfest 4DP one

92kg :(

MAX = 1637w
5s = 1496w
20s = 1043w
1min = 510w
5min = 292w
20min = 245w

FTP = 233w

Haven't got myself tested for the past 3 or 4 months but I've been doing rides where I managed to avg 217w for 90min and an NP of 245w.

Can't seem to lose weight at all.

An old bag at 33, short and fat at 167/64.5kg at the moment. Did 360w for 6min and 350w for 8min this week.

Live at 1900m, so it’s nice to go to a low area like the NorCal coast area and feel superhuman.

Need to get some maximal 30s and 1 min efforts as they should be much higher:

30s: 10.71w/kg (down from over 13)
1min: 9.28w/kg (down from over 10)
2.5 min: 6.97w/kg
5min: 6.01w/kg
7.5min: 5.82w/kg
10min: 5.46w/kg
20min: 5.00w/kg

I think I could stretch 8w/kg to a full 2 minutes. Currently at 1:40 but that was in the middle of a group ride and at the beginning of a 20 minute race portion.

I mostly focused on crits and sub 5 min power this year.

305w for an hour at 61kg is great going Connor!

If only I was as light as you... I did a half arsed 316w for an hour on the turbo yesterday, but that only equtes to 3.76w/kg :lol:

Winter training for me is going to be very much structured around 20-60min power (unfortunately).

Thanks, Ryanw! I'm lucky to have a few climbs that are about an hour long around to test and train on. Good luck this winter! Most of the people I race and train with are going the polarized route this year and I think that'll be the way for me too - long z1/z2 and v02 to make sure its still there.
