Q&A #13 - Bike power indoors vs. outdoors, and are recovery weeks necessary for low-volume athletes
If the difference between your FTP indoors and outdoors can be 20-30 watts, do you need to test your FTP separately in these different conditions?
What are the factors that impact how big (or small) of a difference you will have?
If you're only training 7-8 hours per week, do you really need a recovery week every 3 or 4 weeks?
