The dreaded ASSAULT BIKE!!!
Many fear this bike but shouldn't, the problem is most people don't know how to manage this piece of equipment like other movements or even when they are another cardio piece like the rower. Even basic seat set up can give you an advantage for your power output while you are working but knowing what relative intensity is required for different types of work, knowing your wattage or RPMs at certain intensities too makes you a smarter athlete that won't die in the middle of an assault bike workout.
Check out this blog and how to video from a CrossFit Legend, James Fitzgerald, on how to test different intervals and better set yourself up for success on that next bike WOD.
