Apparently it’s not got much carry over to cycling. I know this because I was moaning to the gym owner afterwards how I thought it’d be easy because I cycle a lot and he told me.
Just from doing it though I see what he means - you need to be using your upper body to its full advantage. A few times I was struggling and took my arms off for a second and my power halved at least. The other thing that was tough for me at least is the position is different to on the bike and whereas on the bike I’m pedalling at like 90rpm, on the assault bike it’s more like 40-50rpm. Finally, most of the efforts I do for cycling are like 15+ mins which is a big flaw in my training that I’ve just realised.
Ultimately though I don’t think any of the above matters because my heart just couldn’t push any harder - I simply aren’t fit enough right now. You beat me with the rowing I wouldn’t be surprised if you got me here too. I’m looking forward to seeing how you do and preparing for the pain to my ego.
