I’m curious what others think about erg mode for workouts. On the one had, I like that I don’t have to mess with gears and alter my cadence to fit my power input into the prescribed range. Erg mode also makes failing different- I can’t just slide out of the range and give up, I just manage to pedal or I don’t. On the other hand, it doesn’t seem very natural to pedal against a constant resistance, I guess we do this on hills IRL, but the phenomenon of slipping below the range and having to push harder to get back in seems like it might be part of the training stimulus.
Do you think results from interval workouts are better using erg mode or not? I haven’t found much discussion of this, point me in the right direction if it exists.
