Standing and peddling on bike trainer/exercises on trainer

I have a blackburn mag 3 trainer -- is it ok to sprint while standing and peddling. Any bad effects on the bike or trainer for doing so?

Also, any good websites or info on exercises to vary how you bike on a trainer?

Agreed; I have a Kurt Kinetic and stand often. As valygrl says make sure the attachment points on the rear axle are tight...ride a bit then recheck.

I stand every 15 min. Periodically I throw down a 67 watt sprint.
I use the resources valygrl posted and am quite happy with them.

Bikes: Some bikes. Hell, they're all the same, ain't they?

I don't like it. I know, the bike's supposed to be sturdy enough for it, yadda yadda yadda, but out on the road, the bike is free to rock side to side, pivoting around the tire contact patch. Stationary trainers, apart from rollers and unique setups like Kurt Kinetic's Rock & Roll, put all the stress at the rear dropouts instead.

It's one of several reasons that I sold my regular, non-pivoting KK, and I'm careful to not push things too far sideways whenever I find myself on another trainer.

I have a KK Rock n Roll too and I really love it! But I still think it probably stresses a bike in a different way than a real ride. Also, to anyone with a late model KK, I highly recommend the pro flywheel. You can stand and pedal hard without spinning out... it's nice.
