The never-ending debate: indoor training versus outdoor cycling. Some love taking it inside, some hate it. But most coaches recommend a mix of the two to achieve maximum gains. With lockdown still a major factor in how we train, there has never been a better time to get set up with turbo trainers.
There are endless benefits to having a turbo as part of your training regime. Here are the highlights:
It’s far more time-efficient
The single biggest benefit of training indoors is time efficiency. Even on a flat ride, 10% of your time on the road is spent freewheeling. On a hilly ride when you add in descending time, it can be up to 40%. Turbo training is more intense because there’s nowhere to hide.
The WAHOO KICKR allows us to fit more quality work into a shorter time, which is a major positive for the time-constrained individual. Attach your bike to the core and use the app to set a course and away you go! The Wahoo KICKR gives the most realistic ride possible from the comfort of your own home. When indoors, every second of your training session is spent placing the exact desired force and workload through your pedals. Outdoor riding, on the other hand, can result in as much as 30 to 40 per cent of the time spent producing little if any power at all, due to downhill slopes and traffic lights.
Wahoo is one of the most talked-about brands when it comes to cycling and Turbo Trainers. Thankfully, we are all stocked up!! We have plenty Wahoo Kickrs in store, along with a range of other Wahoo Products, readu for next day, nationwide delivery.
It’s more convenient
Turbo trainers also offer the benefit of staying out of conditions that can be plain unsafe during a British winter.
You’re going to stay safe and well – less susceptible to catching colds, flu and bugs, which no-one wants – as long as you keep your turbo setup clean.
Additionally, you’re likely to be more popular with the family. If you head out on a two to three hour ride, that can take up half your day, whereas a quality hour on the turbo will do the same – if not better – job for you and you can get back to the family commitments. You can almost be forgiven.
It’s more interactive than ever
The days of sitting and spinning on the turbo while staring on the wall are long gone. With the rise of new interactive platforms like Zwift, and subscriptions services like TrainerRoad, as well as the software packages provided by smart trainer manufacturers, you can almost literally be transported away to a far away place to do your turbo session.
