Max effort wattage and repeatable interval wattage are not the same thing. A true max effort (even down to 1 minute) could (should???) put a big dent in your anaerobic work capacity and "red zone" work for the rest of your ride. How much higher you can go over the repeatable effort depends on the athlete, the conditions and your body on that day. The repeatable interval targets should be based on a sound FTP test method and be somewhat reproducible, and therefore useful.
