    Hi guys,

    When doing a running FTP (power), how does a treadmill vs a track vs a regular outdoor run compare?
    I wonder mostly about the treadmill? Let’s say one does the FTP test on the treadmill, how well does that translate for outdoor runs?

    It should translate close to 100%. I can’t speak from personal experience, but this is what has been reported to me by others. Indoor/outdoor power discrepancies seem to be consistently greater on the bike.

    Thanks Matt. I will give the treadmill a try. It’s crazy hot here and I don’t feel like running an outdoor FTP test 🙂
