FTP/Power Threshold Improvement Weeks 1-16 Masters is a 16 week plan designed for the Masters (over 40) Cyclist or Triathlete who trains with power, HR (Heart Rate), or RPE (Rate of Perceived Exertion) and can train 9 – 13 hours a week (excluding Rest Weeks). You will need to be able to devote between 2 – 4 hours to training on one of your weekend days.
I built this plan as the ultimate plan to guarantee an overall improvement in all your power zones with the main focus on your FTP.
FTP (Functional Threshold Power), LT (Lactate Threshold) or Wattage. The goal here is to raise your W/Kg (Watts/Kilogram). There are only two ways to do that, lose weight or increase your power output. Here we are going to focus on increasing your power output. This plan progressively builds your FTP with work at your SST (Sweet Spot) (88-93% of FTP), work right at your FTP and also VO2 Max, AC (Anaerobic Capacity) and even touching your sprint in the NP (Neuromuscular Power) zone.

I now enjoy racing
Having “explored” and dug into nearly all products you published (Books, WKO+, WKO 4, plans: power threshold Masters 1-16, 8 weeks to Peak, webinars etc.) for a year now I am totally convinced in training with a power meter, structured Plans and Paleo for Endurance Athletes.
I am 53 and never in my life had so much fun doing sport. And that’s all because of your plans, seriously. And I enjoy racing so much.
FTP improved from 242 at beginning of March to 260 at end of August.
What A Great Year
You were so very kind to give me some training tips a year ago and I wanted to let you know that I reached the podium for my “A” event in September. I felt even better about the “peak performance” overall than the actual placement…for the first time ever I’m wondering how I could possible improve upon such a great 2017, training-wise and performance-wise – Thanks, G
