Trying to figure out spinning watts
My gym (well one of the three) has the computerized bikes so that we can see how many watts we are generating as a class and per bike. Now, I'm not a biker, but I am pretty active with other fitness classes.
We went for about 55 minutes and I had the tension for flats at 5-6, hills at 11 and tough hills at 14-15. My total output it said on the screen was 68.6 The only other time I have recorded was from 14 months ago and i had 38.8.
Up on the screen, for the entire class of 28 bikes for the hour the total output was 550 watts.
Something doesn't jive here and nothing I'm finding online is helpful. I'll ask an instructor when I can, but I would like to figure out what it all means because it doesn't add up quite literally.
