How to Complete an Outside Workout on Hammerhead

Outside Workouts allow you to substitute an outside equivalent for your regularly scheduled TrainerRoad workouts. With a power meter you can complete TrainerRoad Outside Workouts on your Hammerhead head unit. 

Before your Ride

Before completing an Outside Workout on your Hammerhead you'll need to set up sync with Hammerhead. For instructions on how to set up activity sync with Hammerhead and TrainerRoad check out: Activity Sync with Hammerhead 

We also recommend creating a custom display on your Hammerhead unit to follow along during Outside Workouts. For instructions on how to set up this custom display check out: How to Create a Custom Display for your Hammerhead

Note: You'll need to connect your head unit to the internet before your ride to sync your planned Outside Workouts to your head unit.
