Sweet Spot & Cycling Training Zones Calculator

Sweet spot training is a balanced amount of intensity and volume that increases functional threshold power (FTP) and improves endurance. The Sweet Spot training zone occurs between high zone 2 and low zone 4 or 84 - 97% of FTP.

To calculate your sweet spot training zone multiply your FTP by .84 and .97 for the high and low ranges.  Here is our sweet spot and training zone calculator based on Dr. Andy Coggan's 6 Zone training model:
