- Whats the best way to spend an hour on a turbo trainer
I’m looking to keep things ticking over during the winter so as not to lose all the gains I made last year. Simply can’t face going out at the moment however, to cold and wet and lacking in motivation.
Anyhow I’ve resigned myself to mainly turbo sessions for the next few months when hopefully renewed motivation in Jan (and a cross bike) will see me get back outside. I’m probably going to fit in 3 or so a week, but whats best way to spend them?
I have a few of the sufferfest vids, but is there anything else worth doing. Yesterday for example I did 10 min warm up followed by 40 min at about 85% max HR. It was reasonably tiring, but doesn’t feel like I’m pushing things particularly, so unsure of the benefits.
Anyone got any good programmes they’d like to share? Aim is to just keep a reasonable level until the new year, but anything that would help specifically with climbing would be great.

Put your iPod on random shuffle, if it’s a fast bpm tune then do 110/120rpm for the duration of the song, if it’s a slow song then you’ve lucked out and get to keep your rpm at 90-95 for the duration.
It was through doing this that I discovered i have a lot more fast beat songs than slow ones on my iPod…..Posted 4 years agodoboMember
if you have no motivation to get out i cant see you having enough motivation for 3 turbo sessions per week. its fairly tedious even with sufferfest and some new tunes.
some form of intervals on the turbo make it more bearable, 40 mins at a constant pace would drive me madPosted 4 years ago
