I've just spent a couple of minutes preparing my ErgVideo training session for today using the Ride to the Tour video. I want to do a session which will deliver a TSS of around 70 so I've used the Intellicoach Profile Toolbox to plan the workout to deliver that result with the majority of the time in Z3 but with some time in Z4 and Z5.
Having been given the required parameters, number of reps, target zones, ride time, % of time "allowed" in higher zones the system computes the best fit from the available ride profile and generates an .html file which is downloaded, this file configures the ErgVideo player and runs the workout for you, delivering exactly the training you have specified. Preconfigured workout buttons are also available as an alternative planning tool for each ErgVideo.
As you will see a detailed expected analysis of the forthcoming ride is provided so that you know exactly beforehand what you are letting yourself in for though you can also alter things during the ride itself if it proves to be too much or too little, if you are using the MultiRider software to control your CompuTrainer.
Anyway, I thought you might like to see how this ErgVideo workout planning tool works, to download and view a .pdf file of the workout I have planned for today using the Intellicoach system click here.
All I have to do now is ride the darned thing, the planning was easy! More later.
