I’m doing the FTP building block, 3 weeks on 1 week off (starting today!) and I would like to stack the intermediate strength training program on top of this. My question is this: Are the strength training workouts allocated to certain days based on the FTP Building Block plan? If not, what days should I do them? I can’t find a clear answer in the FAQs.
With Strength sessions, it is best to do them ideally on a day when you are riding but not doing any high intensity efforts. For example, a Strength session can be before or after tempo, endurance, recovery, or varied RPM work. A Strength session should not be done before or after threshold, MAP, AC. You can do Strength after Standing Starts. Ideally if it is a rest day then best not to do a strength session as well. Hope that helps
