New user here. Started a training plan this week and got to the sprint/strength session today. The commentary says to disable ERG mode and “shift to the big ring” “go all out” “maximum effort”, etc
So I followed the on-screen prompts but failed the first two sprints; I was at double the target power and being told to “reduce power”. These were only 10 second sprints so they were over before I could adjust. Part of the problem is the lag between leg input and on-screen feedback.
So for the rest of the sprints I just left ERG on and it capped the power and I collected the rest of the gold stars… lol.
Question for those more experienced at these trainings - am I missing something here? When it says “maximum effort” without ERG mode am I supposed to ignore that and try to match the target power? That’s quite a challenge with 10 second sprints while fiddling with the ERG mode and getting hands back on the bars, shifting, and waiting for the power+cadence readings to stabilize.
Is it better to just leave ERG mode on for all training?
