Zone 2 training is performed at a lower level of effort, where holding a conversation while exercising is possible. It has gained a lot of traction in recent years, receiving endorsements from leading health and fitness experts such as Peter Attia and Dan Huberman.
In addition to 2-3 REHIT rides, consider doing 2-3 longer workouts per week (ideally 60-90 minutes each) in Zone 2 for optimal longevity benefits.
CAROL Bike offers a number of options for Zone 2 training:
- Zone-Based Free Ride: Keeps you automatically in a specific training zone.
- Constant Power Free Ride: Allows you to select a target power as the bike automatically adjusts resistance to keep your power output at that level.
- Regular Free Ride: Lets you directly control resistance.
Zone 2 training can also be done while cycling through virtual landscapes in apps like Zwift or Kinomap or while watching YouTube, Netflix, Disney+, and other popular streaming apps. (These apps require membership independent from CAROL Bike.)
