A new feature has been added to the BODY BIKE® Indoor Cycling app: COLOUR INTENSITY ZONES. Training with intensity zones makes it easier to guide the class as well as to target your training. Adding colour to the zones, makes it visually easier to determine if you’re in the correct zone during your workout.
The original power chart by Coggan features 7 training zones – the red zone being divided in three to accommodate very target-specific and competitive training. For the BODY BIKE® Indoor Cycling app, only 5 zones are depicted. However, the red zone is divided into three:
106-120 91-96 Static red dial
121-150 N/A Slowly pulsating red dial
150 < N/A Quickly pulsating red dial
It is not very often that cyclists will need to get up in the pulsating zones, so to simplify the visuals of the intensity zones, the three zones above are compressed into one. The 5-zone version of Coggan’s power chart is the most common used for indoor cycling.
