Rewire App Settings

Overview

  • Name: Your chosen first and last name.
  • Functional Threshold Power (FTP): Functional Threshold Power is an estimation of the highest power (measured in watts) that a rider can maintain in a quasi-steady state without fatiguing for approximately one hour. We use your FTP to calibrate workout intensity. For more and to learn how to calculate, see below.
  • Lactate Threshold Heart Rate (LTHR): The exercise intensity in which the release of lactate into the blood first begins to exceed its rate of removal.  For more and to learn how to calculate, see below.
  • Set Mantra Messages: Mantras can set and customised for Brain Endurance Training and Mindset Recovery. Self-talk is shown to increase performance by reducing the perception of effort. Select suitable mantras to be shown to you during workouts and mindset recovery to assist in developing self-talk.
  • Bluetooth Devices: Manage which Bluetooth devices are connected. You can connect: the Rewire Fitness Buttons, a power meter, and a heart rate monitor.
  • Third-Party Integrations: Connect your Rewire Fitness account with Strava, Apple Health or Google Fit.
  • Include Mantra Messages: Ability to disable/enable mantras.
  • Enable Workout Alerts: Workout alerts tell you when you are working above or below the target power.
  • Enable Auto Levels: Auto levels adapt automatically to make the Brain Endurance Training more difficult as you improve. Only recommended for advanced users.
  • Enable Voice Control (Experimental Feature): Ability to control Brain Endurance Training workouts using your voice. When enabled, to answer simply say “Left” or “Right”.

Functional Threshold Power (FTP)

Functional Threshold Power (FTP) is an estimation of the highest power (measured in watts) that a rider can maintain in a quasi-steady state without fatiguing for approximately one hour.

Your FTP can be used to calculate training zones when using a power meter and allows you to track improvement. We use your FTP to calculate workout intensities suitable for your ability.

To calculate your FTP a 20-minute test is typically used. After a good warm-up, ride as hard as possible for 20 minutes. Take the average power for this workout and subtract 5% to calculate an estimation of your FTP.

Typically it is suggested that you test your FTP every four to six weeks. Once you have done this, please update in the Rewire settings so that we can recalibrate your workout intensity.

If you do not know your FTP and do not have the means to calculate it currently, we use an approximate value of 200W. Then feel free to update it to a more accurate value when possible.

Lactate Threshold Heart Rate (LTHR)

Lactate Threshold Heart Rate (LTHR) is the exercise intensity in which the release of lactate into the blood first begins to exceed its rate of removal. For most athletes, LTHR is typically 20 heartbeats per minute above the steady aerobic threshold.

A trained athlete can normally exercise at just below their LTHR for around an hour. however, if they go above the LTHR this exercise can typically last for only 5-6 minutes before reaching a point of fatigue.

To calculate your LTHR, exercise as hard as possible for 30 minutes. Take your average heart rate for the last 20 minutes, and that’s your LTHR.

LTHR can be used to calibrate a workout intensity that is suitable for you.
