Terminology – The Basics Explained

Watts, normalized power, efficiency, threshold, critical power, anaerobic work capacity – it all gets a bit confusing right!? As technology improves so does our capacity to measure different variables. As endurance athletes we are so often driven by the data but like many people you may struggle to break the barrier into what this terminology…

3 Simple Skills to Improve Your Mental Preparation for Training and Competition

On such way of doing this is through the implementation of psychological skills training or PST. PST can be defined as consistent…

Influence of upright versus time trial cycling position on determination of critical power and W’ in trained cyclists

It’s a common school of thought that there are differences in power production from one cycling position to another the most common of which from our relaxed position on the hoods to a more aggressive aerodynamic position. This study, full text here, aimed to identify whether there was in fact observable differences in key physiological…
