      Hi Lynda , I hope all is well .

      Just a question on the masters MTB base program ( I plan on starting it again soon), and the L4 workouts …..

      I travel alot for work and am listening alot to trainer road podcasts and all the talk of ‘sweetspot’.
      And recently I saw on Instagram, Andrea (brickhouse racing) refer to you and also TR’s Sweetspot in a post .

      Are the mid week L4 worksouts in MMtbBP just sweetspot by another name ?
      Ive thrown a few in to the mix (drag and dropped in on TR ) the last couple weeks and they seemed a bit tough compared to a potenial percieved 88-94% of ftp .
      Although to be fair I suspect I have had a drop in FTP .

      My goal again this year is Whaka100 and am actually thinking of going along the lines of the reccomendation that you made to ‘Helen’ in the last couple weeks.

      TIA
      Dave

      Hi Dave,

      The L4 intervals on our Masters 40+ Mountain Bike Base Mountain Bike Training Plan are 98% of FTP. This is threshold intensity and definitely a higher level than sweet spot.
