We recommend watching our 'how-to' videos. They are also provided on your ErgVideo™ DVD's.
But all of this precision-training requires that you know your FTP reasonably well. If you set your FTP too low, rides will be too easy and your training may not be as effective as it could be. If it is set too high, rides will be impossibly difficult, grinding you to a breathless halt, and the same can be said: your training may not be as effective as it could be (!)
ErgVideo provides a solution with the Threshold Test ErgVideo. It puts you through a prescribed warmup and a standardized, repeatable test with which to determine your threshold power. You use the result as your threshold power level in your rider settings. Studios can run threshold tests on up to 24 riders at once, just like any other ErgVideo session. Check our video tutorial help page for an easy to follow, step by step walkthrough of the threshold testing procedure with ErgVideo.
The threshold test ErgVideo is available in our store.
