I'm an amateur cyclist and I don't have a exercise physiology background. I'm considering buying a moxy to guide my interval trainings on my indoor trainer, to better understand myself and give better feedback to my trainer. From time to time when the going get's tough, I see that I can't complete the last interval in the sequence because off exhaustion. Can someone guide me with information to read / study how I could apply moxy in this excersises to inform my trainer and myself what is needed ? Sometimes I have the impressions that the rest periods between the intervals are too short. Best Regards, Bart

Thanks for your great post and I can tell you that this is a very common question I get daily on e mails sop thanks for posting it here.
I try to start simple : 1. Your idea to give bio feed backs to your coach is a great idea. This will eliminate the calculator and your coach can work much more individually with you. a) 2 feed backs you can provide to your coach. - a TIP in regular time steps. This will first give him a feedback on what is your current limiter. Therefor he can adjust his training program to improve the limiter. If successfully you will do after 6 - 8 weeks a new TIP and see, what is now the limiter and how you improved the old limiter. . This as well will give you an individual periodization. If you have a problem to run a TIP we can help. Than you make a RIP and with the RIP your interval workout will be guided. in intensity an din recovery time in between loads as well as in how many steps makes sense.. You can make a RIP in different ways depending on the sport and or the interval ideas your coach has set up for you. One simple initial RIP is that you simply use MOXY in your next workout and than you can see what creates the limitation and what the interval really is stimulating based on the trends we see there. Than the coaches questions is, whether what the interval is doing was actually really the plan. Hope this helps to start out. Last but not least in the workouts , whether it is endurance or indoor interval MOXY will guide you daily for optimal individual workout intensities .
