What workout types do we support?
You can choose from many types of workouts.
- % FTP - workouts are based on the percentage of FTP. So, over time it is important to run an FTP test periodically. Recommended frequency for taking an FTP test is once per month. But of course, it is always up to you and your training goals.
- Power - Workouts are based on power indicators. It means that any workout of this type is going to be exactly the same for any category of cyclists. The resistance level is not changing and applied exactly as set.
- Power / Kg - workouts it is important to set your precise weight whenever your body weight has changed significantly over last time. The level of resistance, in this case, will be adjusted correspondingly.
- Slope - Workout is based on % Slope. Just keep in mind the maximum number of the slope gradient your trainer is able to support. You can find this information on the vendor's website or in the trainer's manual under the "maximum simulated hill incline". You can set any number for the hill incline simulation in our app but the actually applied resistance is not going to exceed the level which your trainer hardware is capable of supporting.
Also, you can add segment titles, workout instructions or synchronize the workout with famous training videos like SufferFest... Even more, you can share your workouts with all users or select from friends etc.
