I’ve been training with PerfPro for the last couple of years and now have a free subscription to Trainer Road, so figured I would give it a try.
With workouts in PerfPro, you set your FTP. To calibrate you get in the big ring and somewhere in the middle in the back. Then calibrate and you’re set. The one big things is once you’ve calibrated, you don’t shift at all during the workout - you let the trainer and software do all the workout.
My question is this: does Trainer Road work the same way? Once you’ve calibrated and you’re in the big ring in front, are you allowed to shift? I was doing a workout when suddenly it became literally impossible to pedal. The ERG mode kicked in hard core!
Just looking for TR best practices.
By the way, I have an external power meter - Favero Assioma Duo’s. I have power matching turned on. I have a Kinetic By Kurt Smart Trainer as well.
