10 tips for improving your indoor winter workouts

We show you how to make the most of your indoor workouts this winter

Indoor training allows you to maintain or build fitness whatever the weather or lockdown situation – but thanks to huge advances in both the hardware and the software, it is now much more than just a substitute for the real thing.

The latest trainers and apps allow you to perform intervals without the usual dangers and distractions of the open roads, virtually ride the iconic climbs of the Grand Tours, join pro teams’ training sessions, e-race on Zwift or just go for a spin with your mates – and that’s barely scratching the surface of what they can do.
