Turbo Training Top Tips
If you are new to turbo training or are looking to make your training more enjoyable, here are our top tips for making the most of your turbo training!
1. Make sure you set up your turbo trainer securely
The last thing you want when you are head down sprinting out an interval is to feel your bike rocking or moving.
2. Front wheel block
If your turbo trainer is supplied with a front wheel block. Please use as these help make sure your bike is sturdy, so you can cycle at full pelt without worrying about toppling over or weakening your connection with the trainer.

3. Turbo Trainer tyres
If you are training with a wheel on turbo, we recommend replacing your rear tyre with a turbo trainer specific tyre to stop you rear tyre ‘over heating’ and ‘wearing’ down.
Remember Turbo training tyres are not designed for road use.

4. Keep your cool
Without the cooling airflow, you create when cycling outside turbo training sessions can get incredibly hot and sticky; you will sweat more than you thought possible. An ideal turbo training area would include a fan, or be near to an open window, as indoor training can get seriously hot
Indoor training is hard. Don’t forget to look after your body indoors the same way you do outdoors. Ensure you are properly hydrated and drinking throughout your session. Any very hard session, or any ride longer than an hour, requires carbohydrates.
6. Train Smart
Turbo training has been totally transformed in the last ten years with the introduction of power, apps and virtual training. The sweat is still real but, like a video game, you can now navigate your way around online training courses, whether this is the notorious Zwift Island or a chance to ride the UCI World Road Race course, you can now cycle anywhere, at any time.
