Webinar: Understanding Power and Power Data


(0 votes)

Topic: Understanding Power and Power Data
Presenter: Jim Vance

This webinar is for any coach or athlete who wants to better understand what power is, how a power meter works, and what it can tell us about an athlete’s fitness. TrainingBible Elite Coach Jim Vance will discuss and explain how we define power, how to read a power file, and how to build training sessions and programs around power data, to help athletes reach their potential. Jim will use TrainingPeaks online software and WKO+ software to explain how to read power files.
