The FTP test allows you to know the level of training of a cyclist with a test carried out in real conditions (but you can also carry out indoors with magnetic rollers). Testing your bike, in real-world conditions, when and as many times as you want, is undoubtedly a great advantage. There is a strong correlation between VO2max (maximum oxygen consumption) and the lactacid threshold. The higher the VO2max, the higher the load at which the lactate begins to accumulate. In fact, physiologists have […]
