Zwift as a Training Tool

In this Podcast Coach Frank talks about the 3 ways he advises athletes to use Zwift as a Training Tool. They include: #1 Using Alpe Du Zwift, #2 ERG Mode and #3 Group Rides and Races.

What if you had a one hour climb out your backyard to train on? Well now you do with Zwift’s Alpe D Zwift. We’ll talk about using the Alpe du Zwift as a training tool - not necessarily playing the game and racing… but as a training tool to help you follow your training plan and workout better. Bringing some enhancements to FTFP’ing. The Alpe is a great way to use terrain to help you make better watts.
