I am new to trainer road. I actually posted this question to to the podcast, but this forum may have been a better place.
I have a question regarding Working out with the ERG mode. I have been using my trainer for a few years now but only recently have been getting more out of it.
When I am doing a workout, and matching the required power; I usually find it a lot easier to spin faster so that the resistance eases off. I wonder how this translates into a real world situation.
In the real world I am not going to have the option to simply spin faster to make the pain stop. On the trainer I end up spinning at 100-110rpm. This is a lot faster than my normal 80-90 rpm on the road.
I guess my question is: For best results, should I avoid spinning faster on the trainer and just take the pain at my regular rpm?
