WEEK 1: your journey begins now

Session #1 - Easy Ride

Let's begin with an easy ride. Give your body a chance to adapt to riding your bike again. What is easy? You should be able to talk the whole ride.

Recommended timing: TUESDAY

Session #2 - Your FTP Test

FTP stands for Functional Threshold Power and is defined as the highest average power you can sustain for approximately an hour, measured in watts. Don't worry; the test is only 20 minutes long. All ROUVY Workouts are based on your FTP. Test yourself and find out your FTP.

Recommended timing: FRIDAY
