Hi all. Im new to this, just got a Kickr Core and a Garmin heart rate monitor.
I did my first workout today and don’t understand how its meant to work. My understanding is that the ERG mode is meant to hold my power output stable at the designated number required by the programme, by altering the resistance of the turbo trainer.
So I was doing a 30 minute workout ‘Emily’s short mix’ to start with. My power output was all over the place. The programme was asking me to increase my power, but I was already in the biggest gear on my bike and pedalling at 120 rpm. Then, when it wanted me to warm down at the end, it said pedal at 65W or something so I slowed down and the pedals became impossible to turn.
On another 2nd workout I tried, the warm up said pedal at 80 rpm for 50W. My pedalling at 80 rpm was over 100W and I couldn’t figure out how to lower my power output.
Also my HRM was paired but on screen was just reading zero.
I am rather confused.
