Anyone tried to incorporate working at the same time as training? Given the amount of time I have to spend in front of a computer, and that a majority of that time is now at home, I’ve been searching for a way to do trainer sessions while working at the same time.
Initially, I tried the Wahoo desk. But ultimately, I found that I just couldn’t really work while in the normal cycling position. So, I ended up picking up a cheap recumbent bike (a real one, not exercise bike) and the cheapest stand up desk I could find. So far, it works pretty well, although works best for steady/endurance type rides as opposed to doing intervals or higher ftp segments.
In addition to a road bike, I also own a recumbent bike that I ride often, but it is very reclined, and not suitable for working, so I ended up looking for a recumbent with a low bottom bracket with an upright seat so that I would be in a more typical “desk” position. Found a used Sun EX Sport, which is probably one of the most upright recumbent bikes out there. Also, thought about using a recumbent exercise bike, but don’t like the wide q factor and unrealistic feel.
Thought others might like to see a picture of the set up:
