Below is my workout for today. Zwift allows you to adjust your FTP. We have you set at 210 watts in TrainingPeaks so you’ll want to set it the same in Zwift.

Zwift also lets you choose ERG Mode. I prefer my athletes leave ERG Mode unchecked.

Then you still have the option to choose whatever World and Route you want.

Lastly, before you start riding, you may want to go to MenusSettings and Turn OFF “Workout Pain Effect”
And you’ll probably want to turn down “Trainer Difficulty” so you don’t feel the hills as much – Up or Down. It’s hard to hold interval power when you hit steep up or down hills.
