Functional Threshold Power (FTP) represents your ability to sustain the highest possible power output over 45 to 60 minutes, depending on whether you're a trained athlete or not. As a result 95% of the 20 minute average power is used to determine FTP.
The 3 minute test will calculate your Maximum Minute Power (MMP) and Maximum Heart Rate (MHR), you can use this information to set personalized training zones and give structure to your training. If you're unsure of how to pace your 3 minute test, try the submaximal ramp test as a warm up.
The Wattbike will also assess and improve your pedaling technique. It measures the left/right leg balance which will allow you to revise your technique to put equal power into each pedal. By improving your cycling technique this will help you improve performance and avoid future injuries.
