How does Adaptive Training recognize if I go harder/easier than what my workout prescribes?

Adaptive Training recognizes when you go harder or easier than what your workout prescribes. You can increase or decrease the intensity of a workout or, while riding in Resistance or Standard modes, simply ride harder or easier than what your interval prescribes. The Adaptive Training system identifies changes during your workouts, gives you credit for these adjustments, and will adapt future training accordingly.

Note: Changing workout intensity or going harder/easier than what your workout prescribes will not change the Workout Level for a workout.

  • Riding harder than what your workout prescribes will likely result in a slightly higher level workout being recommended to you for your next workout in that zone.
  • Riding easier than what your workout prescribes will likely result in a slightly lower level workout being recommended to you for your next workout in that zone.

Significantly higher/lower power compared to the prescribed target power of a workout may move the workout outside its originally intended power zone. Adaptive Training does not currently recognize when this occurs, but we plan to address this with future product updates.

How should you respond to a Survey if you go harder/easier than what your workout prescribes?

The survey response should reflect the work you completed during the workout. For instance, if you increase the intensity, answer how the workout felt to you at that increased intensity and not based on how the workout felt in relation to the original intensity. 

Remember, there's no need to overthink it. Just give a quick snapshot response according to how you felt overall, and Adaptive Training will do the rest.
