T-Max Ramp Test

This is a Ramp Test used to determine your Max Power which is essentially your max power @V02 Max.

Perform a 10-15 minute Warm Up of your choice then, proceed through the Ramp Test in self selected cadence that feels normal for you.

The Ramp begins at 120 watts and increases resistance by 10 watts every sixty seconds until the conclusion of your test.

Your Max will be the highest wattage that you are able to maintain for a minimum of 30 seconds.

Once you've determined your Max power cool down for 15 minutes .

Enter ERG mode and ride your Max power as long as possible to determine your T-Max (Time @ Max Power).

********************

T-Max workouts are ridden at 50% time that you were able to ride your Max Power = T-Max.

Example:

You finished your Ramp Test at 400 watts for 45 seconds: This is your Max Power.

You were able to ride at your Max Power for 4 minutes.

Take 50% of the time that you were able to ride at your Max Power: 50% of 4 minutes @ 400w = T-Max of 400w x 2 minutes.

When performing T-Max intervals the rest interval is 50% of the work interval and you would perform them until your power drops by 10%....these suckers are tough but, are well worth the pain...enjoy!
