I know you addressed your question to John but based on my experience of these sessions I would politely suggest that you're thinking a bit too much about the numbers
The Turbo sets are not easy and the sessions are long (group setting helps IMO). It will take you a few weeks to settle in and translate the numbers into the effort levels that you will be able to sustain both during the intervals and the whole set. If you have a computer or watch and a HR strap it will help you to know what sort of effort you are putting into the pedals and how consistent you are across the set but like I say, the first few will be an experiment!
Personally I have only good to say about John's Turbo class. Give it a go and see what you think but defo bring towels and lots of water
this was my first EVER turbo session....and it was brilliant!!.....everyone should give it a go.......dont be worried if you havent a clue about turbos as John knows everything.
Many thanks John for a great session and looking forward to next week!!

I found it great, not as torturous as I expected so that is good.
Looking forward to the next one and really expecting it to magically fix my cycling ability (or lack of ability!)
It might be a good idea to remember that phrase for later in the year when I suspect it will be a little different!
Some sets are so exhausting that I find myself driving home along the M11 at about 50kmh, totally shell-shocked!
If you can stick it out for the winter you won't know yourself come next race season. Aside from the conditioning from the sets I personally find that I learned a huge amount about how hard I could push myself physically and mentally which is pure gold dust when we go to race.
Well done all, I'm sorry I couldn't make it now, sounds like an other good one!
