I see there's a new release and that MaximumTrainer will be relying on donations! I guess I'm then being a bit greedy to ask but...
Any plans on adding the % grades in workouts for the following release?
We will need to have a power curve for each separate resistance (knob)
So if you have one that you can use most of the time, that would be good.
Then you could record the trainer speed and the power at the same time (with a power meter and a speed sensor)
After a few workout, when we have a lot of data, we can check the .fit file and build a spreadsheet that will have
5 kmh = 150 W
10 kmh= 200 W
The more points the better to derive the formula!
I surely understand you have other things to tackle to get the app. updated and so on. However since it's a "training" application workouts and training plans are quite key off course! That's one of the things I'm currently missing a bit, however on the other side I'm very happy to use your application and seeing that it all works pretty nicely. I'm sure it will only get better when more updates are brought in, so keep up the good work and thanks for running this application for free!
The graph in studio mode doesn't show any lines, since it would not be readable with a lot of users. It is just used to have an overview of where you are in the workout and what is coming next.
Each user has his own little box to follow, the targets will be written there. Power/HR target will be different for every user depending on their FTP/LTHR from the studio page. Cadence targets are the same for all users.
Basically, it's the same as in solo mode, the box will become red if you are too high or blue if you are under target.
The target will change in real time so you have to follow your little box.
Hopefully it's clear, if you have any questions just let me know!
Yep, that's what I thought and expected but both of my straps behave the same. I could do with another head unit to test with but I sold my old Garmin Edge.
Quick free ride below shows the output from Maximum Trainer. HR strap only connected to laptop (MT) for the first 2min and then also connected to Garmin 735XT from 2min onward which had no problems with the HR reading. Definitely an odd one.
@admin Sorry for the late feedback, I've been away from training for a bit. The new version works perfectly, training sessions are now uploaded as Stationary trainer rides, and they show up on all relevant pages.
This is a beautiful training program, and it's even getting better with every update. Kudos, Max! Awesome work.
Yes the wheel circumference is really important when using a speed sensor to calculate speed and power, a few millimeters won't make a big difference but if you want the most realistic data I would double-check.
You can check out this sheet for reference.
Myself, I prefer to measure the wheel once it's inflated to my desired PSI using this method (see post 2)
