I’ve recently bought my first trainer and I’m having a little trouble understanding the trainer difficulty settings.
I’ve done my research and I understand that it is actually a hill gradient which for example sets the gradient from 10% to 5% when using a 50% trainer difficulty setting.
But the power needed to ‘go up’ is actually the same, regardless of the setting. It would only effect the frequency of the shifting you will do.
My main question here is if this effects your workout. Will you have better results if the difficulty is set at 100%? Will your real life climbing be better is set at 100%?
Thank you in advance?
