I’ve recently started using a Kickr Core, a big upgrade from a basic fluid trainer.
I understand that for a given power using a faster gear spins the fly wheel faster and so the effort “feels” easier.
I have watched the video about muscle recruitment and how that changes with flywheel speed, regardless of power. The suggestion there is to try and replicate the event you are training for.
My question is, wouldn’t it be better just to leave the bike in a lower gear and suffer it, assuming I can still manage the prescribed training?
