I am using a Suito Elite trainer this Winter and for regular rides, I love it. However, I’d like to up my climbing legs and overall power for next outdoor season. Yet several times I’ve dialed up a workout plan, I start it, but it is so HARD I quit.
I’ll be spinning along, Zwift is telling me to up my power and/or cadence. Then suddenly my trainer makes it so hard to pedal I can’t even turn the crank (I know it’s called ERG mode). Then I’m pedaling along and it’s at say 187 watts and 80 cadence and the program is telling me to get up to 340 watts. But I’m already in my upper gear range, how the ■■■■ am I going to maintain cadence yet also get that much more power? I feel like I’m not understanding some fundamental aspect of this, can someone please enlighten me, or am I just a wimp?
