José Ramón Lillo, PhD is a researcher at the University of Alicante. In this interview, we discuss a study where Functional Threshold Power (FTP, as measured by 95% of the average power from a 20-minute all-out time trial) was compared to maximal lactate steady state (MLSS) and other physiological markers.
IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:
-Definitions of testing protocols for FTP and MLSS
-How does FTP compare to MLSS according to Dr. Lillo's research?
-How does the warm-up protocol of the FTP-test (Coggan and Allen proposed a long, intense warm-up including a 5-minute time trial) impact the measured FTP?
-Recommendations for a lower correction coefficient than the original 95% to get a better estimate of MLSS
-General testing recommendations for field and lab testing
