Riding with the Heads Up Display (HUD)
SPINTERTAINMENT’S unique Heads Up Display (HUD) makes it easy to follow along to our workouts with a very large variety of bikes. As long as your trainer has some sort of adjustable resistance system you’re good to go! On a manual indoor bike trainer this may mean changing the gears on the bike itself, on Spin and exercise bikes it will usually come in the form of a knob or lever.
The HUD includes a number of key metrics which are important to be aware of to follow along with our workouts:
Cadence (RPM) - This is the rate that you’ll be pedaling at. Many bikes and training systems include a Cadence meter which allow you to match your rate perfectly with that of the video. If yours doesn’t, don’t worry! The beat of every song in a Spintertainment video is perfectly matched up to current Cadence, which means to ride at the proper pace you just have to pedal to the music!
Level (Rate of Perceived Exertion) - This is where your bike’s resistance becomes important. When the HUD indicates that you are at a Level 5 your bike should be at a resistance you could comfortably ride at for an hour or more. Level 1 should feel like a breeze, and level 10 should be as hard as you can go. This represents your Rate of Perceived Exertion. Because every bike is different and so is every person’s limits, you’ll need some practice to figure out what each level means for your particular bike.
Position - Indicates what sort of interval you’re riding through, and whether you should be in a standing or sitting position as you ride.
Total Time Progress Bar - Helps you track your progress through the workout and gives you an idea of what’s coming up.
Smart Trainer Integration
Integration with smart trainers is a great experience! We are working on funding/developing our own app but in the meantime we recommend using the TrainerRoad app. Join the Spintertainment Videos “Team” on TrainerRoad and you will find custom workouts that match up with our videos. TrainerRoad is a fee structured system but the overall experience along side the Spintertainment videos is well worth it!
