I was poking around on Zwift the other day and accidentally started a free trial. Figured as not using TR at the moment I’d have a play.
My question is do Zwift workouts still use the course as it is, with uphills and downhills?
I am used to the trainer being controlled through ERG on TR and other similar software, so just stick it in a gear and only change if need to do sprints/jump straight to V02+
I can’t see how you could do effective workouts using the course topography without loads of gear and cadence changes (and then wouldn’t necessarily be closely following the workout), plus a few of the climbs put me well over FTP with my gearing and the downhills make it hard to keep the power up.
EDIT - even reading this back I wonder why I have asked the question as it seems mental (plus I could just try it) but a friend who uses Zwift told me this it how it works - I just cannot see that is true.
