Now that I just received a new Cycleops Powerbeam Pro Trainer I needed to find a way to utilize it to the fullest. I originally was just using the Joule 3.0 that came with it but then looked into the Virtual Training software and that looks nice for the road biker with the videos and everything but I ride off-road and prefer to have specific workouts that can improve myself rather than just riding a road course. My good friend Scott turned me to Trainerroad.com that he has been using and loves it. I downloaded the software and signed up for a 30 day risk free account and was hooked the first time I used it. I was able to select specific workout programs from Sufferfest to Cyclocore to just plain interval or endurance workouts. What is great is you select the type of Plan you want to follow and it will choose a predetermined workout for the next weeks until you have completed the plan. It is like you have your own coach telling you what to do and when to do it and at what intensity. Also most of the workouts have integrated messages in the workout to prepare you what will happen or what cadence that they want you at. You can even integrate videos into the workout from Sufferfest etc. It is unbelievable.
All I want you to do is check out their website and experience it for yourself. I have some $10 off coupon codes for the first 10 people to send me an email at Beata@BeataWronska.com that wants to sign up.
