When I’ve done my Full Frontal examination (Rubber Glove - anyone?) I’ve always attacked the 5sec NM sections by standing up on the pedals, thus adding some considerable weight to the muscular only power I can generate.
However, when I come across any NM in the workouts, particularly Violator and The Shovel, I find that I am struggling to maintain form without a large drop in cadence. This happen when in ERG mode.
Clearly that is not so much of a problem in Slope mode, but then I do like the App setting my power targets and the Kickr has no problem with rapid changed in power. It also means I can’t chicken out when stressed (no offence to chickens!)
So my question: should I remain seated during Full Frontal and have a lower NM 4DP profile and easier targets, or attack the 5 second sprint…?
The same question applies to the 1min AP where I attack the first 15-20secs by standing.
So: To Stand or Not To Stand, That is the Question…
