Turbo training in the garage


I won’t say I got sweaty but the term ‘A sweatier crack than a group of weightwatchers in a xmas disco …’ comes to mind.

I am not sure if enjoy is the correct adjective but doing the sufferfest angels video whilst on the turbo sure makes you work harder …. the pool of sweat got bigger and i am not really a sweaty type of person.

Today I discarded the top but kept 2 heart rate belts on to compare the 2 actions of Polar vs Garmin. I love Garmin only for the guess work they put into calorie expenditure – always on the flattering side. The polar is a bit more scientific giving calorie burn (727 on the garmin vs 911 on the polar) normally the Garmin is a tad over estimated but putting in turbo session seems to throw their computations out …. guesswork.

The polar also give a Fatburn FB percentage – today was high cardio zone so only 12%.

Looking forward to the sportive on Sunday ….

Sufferfest ANGELS is a great training video – see the HR chart above 10min of up and under then 3 hill climbs of 8 min each ….. feeling exhausted now but i am sure I will get better …..

Here is a breakdown of angels ….
