CAROL Bike Discount Code
CAR.O.L Bike (Cardiovascular Optimization Logic bike) releases a special Black Friday discount code.
CAROL bikes are an intriguing fitness concept. They are claimed to be a high spec gym-quality bike sold mostly to the home market (gyms too). Their USP is around the benefits of very short-duration, glycogen-depleting interval workouts which you can literally do without breaking into a sweat eg 2x 20 seconds @maximal. In and of themselves these workouts are claimed to boost VO2max, certainly for the non-athlete type person.
CAROL doesn’t claim weight loss based on those specific workouts but that’s where you add in a once-weekly endurance workout.
As always there’s lots of science that underpin this. From what I’ve seen it doesn’t appear to be paid for by the manufacturer and, indeed, I vaguely recall seeing something on the BBC with Dr. Michael Mosley a couple of years ago on this topic.
I guess the bottom line is that this probably will boost fitness (VO2max) in certain individuals but there are other physiological markers that are also important to athletes. That said, a quick win to boost VO2max for most people is probably a great idea.
Price: The bike starts at just over £/$2,000.00 plus a monthly subscription and prices are competitive with Peloton and Nordic equivalents.
