Cycle Training Videos

by stepho   December 26, 2012  

I have to spend quite a bit of time on a turbo trainer as i work 2 weeks at a time on an offshore oil rig.

I normally just spin to music but the other day i decided to watch a movie and i was able to go for much longer and i found it (almost) enjoyable.

I have found a few websites that sell training dvd's (sufferfest seems ok) there are also training films on TDF climbs etc.

Does anyone have any experience of these? is it a worthwhile investment? are they really just a load of shite? Thinking

Your thoughts would be appreciated.

They can sometimes, sometimes, be more fun that riding in real life.

I say fun...

just bought a training dvd..havent tried it yet, but i'll pop back and report on how it goes..its one of the cycleops ones- i thought i'd try this one in particular as it focuses on "force" which i want to improve for some time trials in the early part of '13..we'll see.... Thinking

Thanks Chaps.

I like the look of the ones where you can ride part of a stage on the TDF.

Better than staring at a wall me thinks Nerd
