Spinerval Videos...which one to buy?BkrGrrl

Would love some feedback from anyone that acually owns the tapes. I have a few main interests but would love to start with one great tape:
Recovery & Technique (don't want the recovery but really want to perfect my pedaling technique) -
Fat burning - concentrating on the 60-80% zone
Hill climbing - not convinced that this can be achieved with a video.
Starting to get on the trainer and want to relieve the boredom in the garage and these videos seem like a great way to do that.
Thanks for your input!
I have two that I use.JL

The Uphill Grind and No Slackers Allowed. Both give me a great workout. He tries to give you a target heart zone percentage during intervals, etc. I think the Uphill Grind will help with your hill climbing (strength-wise). They do make the trainer a little less boring, but it's still not as fun as being outside.

Happy riding.

They all are good and just differ in intensity. They all hurt if you put in the effort. I like Sufferarama and the Uphill Grind. I would suggest getting two to limit the monotony. We've got 5 here at work and alternate them to provide various levels of intesity and to allow for recovery. I also keep a crazy mtb vodeo handy to watch while doing recovery/technique rides on the rollers. A Tour video would work for that as well.

As long as you are consistant..you'll hit the pavement in great shape in the spring.

Ride on sister!
