An ideal test to determine power training zones on the bike occurs in a lab and in no way mimics the generic "gold standard" 20-minute FTP test. Which begs the question why it is considered the standard for testing; it shouldn't be. Many of us do not have access to a lab or cannot afford the cost of the testing. I've started using a more effective test protocol for myself and my athletes, which I outline here. It better mimics the latest, effective and accurate lab testing protocol and removes all the caveats of the 20-minute FTP test which render it less than accurate.
