We can’t always get outside and ride our bikes around town. As we approach summer this may not seem as relevant, but sometimes a little indoor training adds some well needed variety. The Sufferfest Indoor Cycling Training Videos are an intense and entertaining way to spice up your indoor training. These videos feature a variety of professional cyclic footage intergraded with interval training that keeps you working hard, well suffering.
The Sufferfest videos are designed for various aspects of training, such as climbing, speed or endurance. There are a large variety of videos to choose from and they cost about $12.99 give or take. Each video is unique and features cycling footage from various races and sometimes scenic cycling footage. Onscreen instructions guide you through the training intervals. The Sufferfest uses a perceived exertion scale based on a 1-10 scale. They also provide you with cadence guidance so you know how fast you should be pedaling. Throughout the videos you’ll also get audio queues to to tell you when to speed up or slow down and various messaging to induce suffering and motivate you.
Like the same indicates, The Sufferfest, uses suffering as the consistent theme throughout the videos. And by the end of each video you are suffering. What I like about these videos is they are not easy if you really follow the instructions. They make you work, and they keeping things different. The video is entertaining and fun to watch. It puts you in the middle of a bike race and helps the time fly by.
What is IWBMATTKYT? (pronounced “Aye-Wuu-Bee-Ma-TEET”): “I Will Beat My Ass Today to Kick Yours Tomorrow.” Try a video and you’ll understand!
My favorite video is ISLAGIATT, which is “It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time.” It’s a two hour video for climbing and endurance. It features video footage from Giro d’Italia. It long, so prepare to suffer, but once you complete it you’ll be glad you did.
