With PerfPRO Studio's built-in workout editor it is extremely easy and fast to build up workouts. It's easy to build up multiple sets of
workout steps (or tasks), which get saved to file and directly to you Workout Database
Descriptions of previous steps are saved so typing in descriptions of each step is quick. There are also zone descriptions displayed to easily click on to fill in your description.
Simple go through each step, enter total time, starting and ending percentage/wattage, and the number of sets if grouping tasks together. Pretty easy, ehe?.
You can also enter comments/goals that appear on the screen 20-seconds into a workout for all riders to see. They then know what to expect during the workout.
With the workout editor you can build up:
- FTP percentage based workouts. With
RacerMate's older MultiRider software these would be equivalent to an MRC file type. These types of workouts are probably the most popular since the entire workout is based on your
current abilities, and it works for multiple riders at once. As you improve throughout the season there's no need to adjust the workout, just your FTP, which makes the workout harder.
- Wattage based or ERG workouts. These are strictly wattage based workouts, totally independent of your FTP and best if only used in a single-rider environment. Whatever watts are
used is what the rider has to dish out.
- Gradient percentage based workouts. These workouts are similar to FTP% workouts except you ride in "Course Mode" rather than "Power Mode". A rider's FTP does not pertain to these workouts. These
workouts are great for doing hill repeats at a certain time interval. No matter how hard and fast you head up that hill you still have to climb it for a certain period of time.
With the workout editor you'll spend more time training/resting and less time creating workouts.
