If you like training tempo at LT at a power watt... and you like video tapes to inspire you for intervals ....... This is not a bad tape to get.

Chris Carmicheals Time Trial tape.

I have 27 biking videos. I have to admit that lately I been doing some Spinervals... But I want to mention on this forum that its a great tape if you want something new to inspire you that you can use on a computrainer/watt meter.... and adapt many workouts to.
I have been teaching spin for 6 years but I get a lot of inspirationg from real biking. I can't convince folks enough to keep their cadences fast and sharp......and build on that their power. Not just do five minute intervals at say...170/200 watts.... but 20 -30 and 40 minutes at LT heart rate. Get real. Get fast.

this is a good tape because you can vary the workout to suit your needs. These intervals WORK for any trainer.

Man if someone out there has a better tape ..please please tell me. I will get it.
I have to have distractions for my trainer. I will stop at 2 minutes unless someone is looking or I have inspiration from SOMETHING. I totally hate 'tempo day' on the trainer. HATE IT> I give up at 20 minutes if someone can't call me up or say GO GO GO to me .
NO tape does this. its discouraging.
some folks dont need it and can do intervals, workouts with no music or anything.
I can't. :(

What you can do with CTS TT .::: Over and unders. ( one minute above LT ( +/5 heart beats if you can) , one minute below LT -5) for five minutes do this at each of his intervals. try to match their cadence.
do the rests.
.:::30% increases in wattage power (actually I can't but in theory its nice to imagine that some of you could..... ....hmmm)

:;;;;;;;recovery ..just put the watts low and go go go fast cadence high rpm.

If you have any tapes that you like. Please let me know. SO far I have read NO messages at all concerning tapes....except something about some movies.
