I have taken to the peloton like a fish to water. I've been on it straight for the last 40 days and I feel great. My overall goal is weight loss and better fitness but I don't seem to be moving the needle yet. I realize that in my 40's it will be far more difficult to get the same changes in but I still feel like I'm not working smarter.

So the question is this. What is a good framework to ride 6 days a week? I wake up at 5:30 every morning and randomly choose a ride that seems like fun. I also try to make sure that two rides a week are low impact. Outside of that I feel like I don't have a real plan.

Any suggestions would be awesome. I'd love to be able to wake up on a wendsday and say, find a 10 minute HIIT followed by climb and then stretch.

Sounds like you're doing great! Here's an article I saw that talks about different plans. Are you currently doing other exercises via the Peloton app, weights or outdoor activities like running and cycling?

I am looking into other peloton app stuff. I'm thinking body weight workouts but i've been doing 30 minute sessions at a normal gym 4 days a week.

So I think I need to (begrudgingly) add some off day yoga.

I've also just joined the powerzone challenge and taken the FTP test. I love the idea of zone training and I'll see how this feels for a month.

If you're looking for structure, powerzone challenge is probably the best route to go. It's also great to be able to see your progress. For weight loss specifically, I have heard that HIIT are generally the most efficient of the various types although I would make sure not to mix in some easier days like low impact.
