Hey good morning from over here in europe,
first of all, I’ve been using trainer apps for about a decade, starting from the native tacx software, over to zwift, sufferfest, back to zwift (a few month ago) and now I am very new to trainer road.
I know everyone is slightly different.
Sufferfest was great, but it was very hard to achive. And the most of all, I got bored riding again and again the same workouts, as their library is kind of small.
My last experience was that even after riding a TT plan on Zwift, my FTP decreased. Thats… let’s call it ‘sad’.
So here I am. Standing in front of Trainer Road, but I have a few questions.
I already took a look in the FAQs, but I wasn’t able to figure some things out.
TSS Graph - FTP Change:
Black marks show FTP-Changes. Ok, but do I have to make a FTP Test (Ramp Test) to get new values, or is this done time by time doing the workouts?
TSS Graph - Form/Fitness:
Is there a way to display Form and Fitness improvements, or fatigue like in TP?
Or will I still need to monitor all of this in my TP account?
Calender - Trainingpeaks:
Is there a way to synced planned workouts to Trainingspeaks OR Garmin Connect, or plan them in the Calender and sync them onto my garmin watch?
The reason I ask is, that the non-cycling workouts are just plain text, and the intervals need to be planned manually regarding to the descr. in th text to be synced onto my garmin watch.
Trainer Road App Apple Health sync:
Is it possible to sync Apple Health bio data with Trainer Road?
Most needed value here is weight.
Combining workout day:
Is there any recommendation on how to handle workouts? I know, recovery is important to increase improvement, but sometimes it’s just not possible to train so I want to move the workout to another day and maybe do two sessions on one day. Is the Trainer Road conecept allowing this?
I know these are some very specific questions, but maybe you’ll find some time to help me.
