Individual training zones biking by power
If the individual performance threshold (FTP) in watt is determined or known, the training ranges can be read in direct dependence from the respective performance threshold from the respective chart.
Entering training zones on the training platform
Athletes using the weekly coaching option do not need to take any actions, the values will be entered by the coach.
Athletes with prepared training plans give the trainings areas below:
- Settings /Account Settings
- Enter of the FTP-value
- Select type -> Threshold Power
- Select method -> Andy Coggan (6)
- If necessary, enter the name of the zones (the default is Z1, ...)
- Save with Save and close
For each planed training session the individual training pulse and the training area of each single part/interval of the training will be displayed.
There are unfortunately no standardized training areas, not only on the percentage level definitions differ, but also the naming of the single training areas are very variable. We orientate ourselves at the for us conventional standards of sport science and had good experiences throughout with these values over the last years.
All training zones have overlapping in different areas and individual right to exist.
You will notice, that our training zones do not merge seamless, there are gaps – we call these areas gray zones.
The human body switches e.g. his metabolism not within one heartbeat from fat burning to carbohydrate burning, rather flexible transitions between the training areas with a predominant part of one area exist.
With the gaps between the training area we are trying to emphasize the weight of the training area clearer and focus on an accentuated training.
