trainers or rollers, which is the best ultra cheeze?
Start with a Trainer. It is more versatile. You can crank the resistance. You can stand out of the saddle. You are less likely to hurt yourself!
Rollers have their place. Start with a trainer first though.
trainers or rollers
Trainers are good for working your heart rate at various levels.
Rollers are good for perfecting spin technique and body posture on the bike. You can't really get your heart rate up that high on rollers, I like rollers for a recovery type ride or just to stay loose on off riding days.
Not sure if i agree with this entire assessment. You can push yourself just as good. But you cant get up out of the saddle as you would on a trainer. High Rpm intervals are great on rollers.
I recently bought a cheap set of rollers to try out; my intent is "easy" recovery type stuff in the evenings. Getting to the point of not "crashing" on 'em has proven to be more of a challenge than I thought it would :cry:
"tougher than I thought" means I figured I could just hop on and go
I'm getting the hang of 'em...my problem is my sloppy pedaling form...
