I’m really after some advice. I have been riding trail for a while now, but due to work/family commitments have lapsed in my riding this year. Unfortunately due to a change in work I am sitting in a car for 3 hours rather than cycling 1.5 each day! Anyway, enough of the excuses. I decided last week to get a turbo trainer and start working off the fat and getting my legs back in shape!
A few questions:
Is there any particular difference between using a mountain bike or road bike for the turbo trainer? I have to use a mountain bike due to back issues, yes I’m an old crock!
I tested my FTP on the shorter test, during which I thought I was going to vomit, which came out at 220w. What does that actually mean? I’ve been checking different forums and I guess it’s a base to work from.
I need to lose weight, which is one of my goals for Zwift, What would people suggest is a good workout, or workout series, for this?
Any other constructive advice?
Thanks all in advance
