    Ya. My intervals are actually me just pacing against my PR in 10 minute sets. I got 20 above my PR and cut my resistance until I got within 2 of my PR and increased the resistance until the top of the 10 minutes (at which point I'd generally be 12-15 above my PR), then cut resistance until I was within 2 of my PR and increased the resistance until the top of the 10 minutes . . . Just did that until the end.

    I ordered the Bowflex C6 bike which can connect to the Peloton app via a built in cadence monitor and a heart rate monitor. The bike has really good reviews. A lot of folks at r/pelotoncylce seem to use custom set ups with Peloton digital and cadence monitors.

    Yeah I don’t think I really have questions but just curious if the app works with other bikes well. There are a bunch of similar type apps out there.

    we are at the place where at home our elliptical is on the way out and we already have a rower so deciding what to replace it with. I would use the bike more but my wife has some health issues she is still recovering from and a treadmill would work for part of her rehab better. We really only have space at home for one or the other.

    I go to the gym 6/7 days a week for 90 minutes minimum each time. Log about 20mi running and 60miles on a bike plus strength work.

    Trying to figure out if the app works well because I probably could make it work with both bike and tread but I’d have to hang or stand the rower when not in use. If the app works fine with other bikes I could use it at the gym since right now I’m doing pretty static distance in terms of keeping the tension the same throughout the ride. Just p straightforward and I know i could get more out of it.

    hope that makes sense


    *id also probably use the app quite a bit for stretching, yoga and meditation if anyone does that I’d be interested in how it compares as wel.

    I didn't think the "app worked" with any other bikes as far as recording your cadence, output, resistance, speed, and distance. I thought the only metric the digital app recorded was heart rate. So even if you hook up the app to another bike in a sleek, seamless way physically - it doesn't integrate in the same way as if you had the bike itself.

    I think this is correct.

    So this guy connected his C6 bike with the Apple Peloton app. It just displays cadence and heart rate.

    Ok so just cadence then (none of the others). I didn't know it connected to that too but at least that helps some.

    It really just depends if/how you want to track progress. If you just want to just take the classes and go about your day then it's fine. If you want all of the goals and challenges and tracking ongoing progress that comes with Output, Distance, etc then the only way to do that is through getting the bike.

    Highly recommend today’s 45 minute arms and intervals ride with Emma. It has hills, tabata and about 17 minutes of upper body work. Tried to the weights with some 15 pound dumbbells LOL nope.

    Does anybody else get annoyed when Alex stops pedaling during hard stretches and just fucking claps? I love his playlists so I still ride with him but it drives me insane.

    I get really annoyed when Hannah and especially Jess just stop pedaling stand there. But also understand as an instructor, they're supposed to motivate. I just would rather see an instructor suffering along with me than just being a cheerleader. But I also enjoy Wilpers business like approach as an instructor. So I'm weird I guess.

    Highly recommend the 4 week power zone program. Just finished it within the past week or two and it completely changed my approach to the bike. Wish Wilpers had some better playlists, but otherwise I really enjoyed it and will continue to work in 2-3 PZ rides per week going forward. Your power zones will automatically display after completing the 20 minute FTP test ride (there are several of them, just filter by 20 minutes and power zone classes).

    20 min PTR test ended up with 187 kj average output. Last couple minutes fucking sucked.

    Do y’all spend time working on technique at all? My right knee gets a little bit of discomfort in the patellar tendon; I’m thinking it’s from a poor stroke. I’m definitely very quad dominant, but I don’t think my flaring my knee out. Might need to adjust the bike fit a bit too.

    First 30 days of the Bike I did 11 rides at 80 miles. Trying to hit 100 miles this next month and finally try out a few HIIT rides.

    I like it a lot more than i thought I would because the stationary bike was always my least favorite cardio equipment at the gym.

    Are you getting a Peloton? Just a spin bike (bootleg peloton) going outdoor cycling? What are your questions?

    Make sure you keep adjusting the fit of the bike to you. If you haven't spent a lot of time on a bike, you'll probably feel like you're way too high up. Try to keep your cadence/RPM around 80.

    Yeah, getting a Peloton. Haven’t been exercising much lately so wanted to figure out the best ideas for starting back up considering when I did exercise, it was never cycling. Are there certain types of classes I should focus on?

    Depending on who delivers your bike try and get fitted correctly. If it’s a third party delivering try and go to a showroom to get a proper fit. As for as classes start with low impact and beginners classes. Try and take as many different instructors as you can to see who you vibe with. If you can take your first class live. Just because imo it’s cool to get a shot out. Make sure you stretch and cool down rides as much as you can. Proper recovery will keep you riding and motivated to ride more often. Download the app it’s free with your subscription and has tons of great content. Yoga meditation strength etc. I swear by the sleeping meditation. It won’t take long for you to find what works best for you (music class style/type instructor). Hope that helps a little let us know if you have any more questions. Join the Stava group for extra motivation it’s “TMB” on Strava once you do send a request and let me know who you are so I can approve your request.

    Welp, I joined your team, guys. Jumped right in and just picked a class that had a Daft Punk song. First ride ever and I was fucking great. I’ve done a couple spin classes in the past and wasn’t sure if I could get that same drive/motivation — incorrect. This chick was great.

    Crushed my previous 45 min record of 428kj with 459kj last night while riding Jess King's 45 min steady sweat.

    I typically close the leader board and my output until near the end of the ride. I find I focus on it too much. With two minutes left I realized that not only was I beating my personal record, but I could theoretically achieve over 15 miles in the ride. Previously I had been finishing at 14.5~ so I had set a goal of 15 for myself.

    With 30 seconds left or so, I sprinted the last half mile at 60+ resistance. I hit 15 miles right as the timer went to 00:00. In the most dorky way possible, it felt awesome - like a photo finish.

    New goal - 500!
