Workout Synchronization Details

  • Workouts must be Structured Workouts (NOT text only), built using time and power.
  • BKOOL and TrainingPeaks workout synchronization is a BKOOL Premium feature.
  • Workout synchronization is not instantaneous.  Synchronization occurs three times per day:  8:00h, 16:00h, and 0:00h (GMT + 1).
      • For example, if you created a workout in TrainingPeaks at 10 am for the same day,
        unfortunately, it would not be programmed in the simulator until after 4 pm. If it were created at 6 pm, it would not be programmed in the simulator until the following day as the next synchronization would be a 0:00h.
      • If you need to perform a structured workout the same day and have not been able to create/add it to your TrainingPeaks athlete account before the 4 pm (GMT + 1) deadline, you can create it manually using BKOOL's workout editor, either building it yourself or exporting the .mrc file from TrainingPeaks and importing it into BKOOL.
  • It is important that the FTP (Functional Threshold Power) match in both TrainingPeaks and

      • The intensity of the segments is sent as a percentage of the FTP. If they are different, the
        intensity that is applied in the simulator will not correspond to what was programmed in the workout.

      • You can vary the FTP manually in your BKOOL profile if you go to the Work Zones tab.


  • The export of the data after the workout in the simulator to TrainingPeaks will not be
    done immediately. After BKOOL processes the file, BKOOL will send the completed file to your TrainingPeaks athlete account.
