So far I have been doing all my TR on the turbo but recently inherited a set of dumb rollers. Given the mental fatigue leading up to my current recovery week i decided to mix things up and do the “revovery” workouts on the rollers and absolutely LOVED it.
Seriously, it’s a whole different kind of joy and I like the challenges it poses to drinking and other things as I am new to them entirely.
So I thought maybe I’ll start doing Wednesday workouts on the rollers during my short-power build. Then I saw the sprints. There’s no way I can match those watts on the rollers and at this point I’m not getting up out of the saddle on them either.
What are the benefits of those sprints and how would you weigh them compared to the bike handling benefits of the rollers?
I race mostly crits and I do sprint, but I suspect that’s not really what those Wednesday sprints are about anyway?
