Highly recommend power zone programs, way more efficient then guessing cadence/resistance during regular classes
:h5: been doing this for years now. Works so much better than yoloing every ride when looking for performance gains.

I'll try one tomorrow. Any recommendations
endurance if you want long zone 3 intervals (5+ minutes each)
power zone if you want medium length in zones 3,4 and some 5
power zone max short length in zones 5+

Olivia is my favorite instructor but Matt is the most experienced with PZ.

you should do one of the power zone collections though. Intro to power zones is a good one to get started

I'll start tomorrow. Already see a 60 minute ride in there :rofl3:
I would imagine that Peloton keeps those rides pretty entertaining. My zwift rides are pretty darn boring. Nothing to really take your mind off the next interval, the interval your in or the burn you're feeling.

I feel like I’m making actual progress vs the chaos that are the regular classes… like I feel like I could go bike 100 miles :rofl:

I did a 60 min ride with Jess King today. She was nipping hard 😍

It’s actually “easy” also you spend a lot of time at “easy” paces so you become better at pedaling which leads to better outputs

I'm through three weeks of the "Discover your Power Zone" class and it's pretty easy. I tried a 30 minute Olivia pop ride on my day off today and put in a similar average to what I was before the PZ training, and... It MIGHT be my imagination.... But I think it was easier. I'm really looking forward to these next two weeks and some longer/harder PZ rides.

The next level power zone program is even better… you’ll feel like you can do a triathlon :rofl:

Yeah that’s the one, it’s a lot of 60min rides in zones 3, then more intense rides in 4-7
