- Pelo Talk -The 13 Highest-Rated (And Hardest) Power Zone Rides On Peloton
When it comes to Peloton, there's sweating your a** off, and then there's sweating every feature of your body off. And the latter usually comes from a very hard Power Zone ride. Now, I love to feel like I died after a workout (even though Robin would ask me, "Did you die though?") but when it comes to Power Zone rides... I'm pretty intimidated by the idea alone.
However, Power Zone rides are some Peloton users' favorite feature of the bike. Being able to push yourself into a specific athletic zone while monitoring your effort throughout the class? It's a challenge only the greats will accept.
If you're interested in dipping a toe into PZs, then I've got a list for you below of the hardest classes you can find on Peloton. Plus, scroll down to the bottom to find the FTP test that will allow you to find your Power Zones before even pressing start on one of these Wilpers rides. (And yes, Wilpers fans, this list is for you.)
