20 minutes at FTP should be hard but doable depending on how good you feel that day. During an FTP test you technically will be riding above FTP. If you're well motivated it doesn't necessarily feel any harder than regular intervals. After setting my 20 minute PR for power I had to get off my bike and sit down to prevent falling over.
