I am using a power meter (Team ZWATT) with dumb trainer (Tacx Booster) and am not sure how to treat shorter intervals (5 to 10 second sprints) properly. Should I:
- Start mashing with the start of the interval (it can take 2-3 second before I reach goal power)
- Wind up some of the intensity a few seconds before (no lost seconds) while shifting to harder gear.
In the past I had good experience with changing trainer resistance before the start to limit the cadence difference… until I broke the lever.
