Which Sufferfest?

Thinking about buying your first Sufferfest, but not sure which one is for you? First of all, congratulations for refusing to accept boring trainer workouts, bad music and lame video. And good for you that you want to drive yourself into the ground racing against the pros. Well done. Let’s see….where to start if you’re not sure which to buy? You are: Someone who has never done a Sufferfest, aren’t super-fit and isn’t ready for intervals at nearly maximum effort. Start with: Angels. The efforts aren’t as intense as in most of the other videos, and the durations are short

What’s the most you’ve ever suffered on a bike?

For me, it was the final climb up to Mt. Everest base camp, on the Tibeten side. After several days on the road, the terrible surface, my bloody ass, a headwind, burning sun, nearly 6,000m altitude and sheer exhaustion brought me as close to crying as I’ve ever been on a bike. You?

The Quiet Time

It’s the ‘off season’ for indoor training (at least in the Northern Hemisphere), so things around Sufferfest Studios have been a little quiet. I’ve been adjusting to life in Singapore, the family is settling in well, getting my head around the new job (loving it!), and generally being occupied with things other than dastardly sinister training videos. So, aside from a bit of customer service here and there, The Sufferfest has taken a bit of a back seat. I’ve been out on the bike, but not on long training rides – rather, I’m commuting to work and back by bike…and

Revolver is Live!

Whew, in between moving to a new country, starting a new job, having a second kid and trying to ride my bike from time to time, I managed to squeeze in another Sufferfest video. Revolver was just released today. It’s a remake of an old prototype Sufferfest I did early last year called “Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now.” Revolver uses the same workout, which is based on 15 one-minute intervals with one minute rest in-between, but with much different footage and music. And taunts, of course. It’s 45 minutes long, as I wanted to do something which would fit into

The 3rd Sufferfest video: Revolver

Whew. Here’s the trailer for the upcoming Sufferfest, Revolver, due out in a few days. It’s a 45 minute workout, featuring a warm-up, warm-down and 15×1 minute intervals with only 1minute rest in-between. It’s perfect for those high-intensity sessions when you’ve only got your lunch hour to hit the trainer. Of course, you’ll be blown for the rest of the day, but it’s worth it…
