What is the FTP test?
FTP stands for Functional Threshold Power. The FTP test measures your maximum power output over 1 hour. Instead of rowing for 1 hour, you only need to row as fast as possible for a certain time. You can retake the test as many times as you like. The results form the baseline of your training, so every workout is tailored to your performance.
Taking the FTP test
Find the FTP test by selecting Options (the cogwheel in the bottom-right corner of your home screen) and then clicking on Gameplay. Here you find the FTP-Test. You have the option to either select a 20-minute test (sustain high output for 20 minutes) or a ramp test (increasingly difficult until you quit).
It is recommended to retake the FTP test every once in a while.
