Trainer brain! At times you can ride on a trainer and endure and at times your brain will not let you. In my teens to 30's I could spend 2 hours a day on them. Now, I need to be in the mood or have a purpose.
The music things works as mentioned. The movie trick works too.
I like the computrainer and doing the spinscan. It has feedback. I also like racing the little man, it's engages you.
Rollers are my favorite and I use them for form and to get a real ride feel. Spinning can destroy your cycling form and rollers will fix that. I have 3 main workouts on rollers.
1. Warm up little chain ring, drop it in the big chain ring and hold the same rpm. Then get a cadence 90 little chain ring 2 min, big chain ring 2 min, rest 2 min. Next bigger progression and rpm. I can usually make it to 110 or 115 by 5 rpm before I'm shot. I use a straight block cassette.
2. Winding up to a higher Rpm and back down.
3. Holding HR, usually watching tv.
I know a lot of people that use the workout dvd's and like them.
