While there are a lot of alternatives to Peloton, I have never seen an indoor bike like the one named CAROL. I am currently testing out the new CAROL Bike 2.0, which promises great results through extremely short (and intense) workouts. My initial test consisted of two 10-second intervals. Watch below to see how it went!
CAROL is the only bike created for the purpose of REHIT, a next-level high-intensity interval workout that claims double the health benefits in just 10% of the time. Niels Vollaard, who holds a Ph.D. and is an exercise physiology researcher at the University of Stirling, wrote:
CAROL is the only bike that accurately replicates REHIT outside of the labs. This scientific exercise cannot be done on a regular bike because it requires the supra-maximal resistance tailored to each person’s physiology.
While there is some legitimate science backing this up, I wanted to see for myself how such a short workout can deliver results. Here is the video of my initial test with the CAROL Bike 2.0:
I’ll be testing out the CAROL Bike 2.0 further and should be able to have an in-depth review up in January. Keep checking in with Connect The Watts (or subscribe to our YouTube channel) if you would like to see the full review!
