- sufferfest vids – how do they work
Yes there are on screen prompts.
It works on perceived effort, 10/10 all out sprint, 5/10 2 hour ride pace, that kinda thing.
It can take a while to get to know your level if your not that experienced in this type of measurement.
Angles and Hunted are two of the kinder ones, focusing on threshold work rather than pure intensity.Posted 4 years agolemonysamMember
Angels was my first I think and it’s the one I’ve done most times. Hunted is good too though.
It works on perceived effort so requires a little discipline but it does force you to be aware of your effort levels. The first time I tried Revolver I fell off the rollers after about 15 minutes and couldn’t start again.Posted 4 years ago
TrainerRoad is bloody great!
Started using it a few weeks ago, very impressive bit of software, the integration with Sufferfest, (and the connection to the OP), the suggested and real time power output levels based on your own FTP is taking training to the next level.Posted 4 years agoShredMember
I’ve used Angels and The Hunted a lot, but what I found that doing it on perceived effort meant that I was not doing the last workouts at the same pace as the first. I thought I was still pushing, but the actual effort had dropped.Posted 4 years ago
I have also started using TrainerRoad and it has made a big difference in the quality of the workouts as you cannot cheat on perceived effort.lakesriderMember
Am thinking of downloading one, just wondering how they work – do you get something coming up on the screen at various points in the video saying ‘do x / y / z’?
How is the effort measured, is it HR?
Any reccommendations for starter ones? Am thinking of Angels or HuntedPosted 4 years agomrblobbyMember
+1 for trainer road, with or without sufferfest. If you’ve not got a power meter they do a virtual power thing based on your turbo type and wheel speed. Then when you do a sufferfest it’ll give you specific power targets perfectly sync’d with the video. Works great… bloody hard though!
TrainerRoad have also got a deal on this week for a years subscription if you want to save a bit of cash.Posted 4 years ago
