Webinar: I Just Got a Power Meter…Now What?
Topic: I Just Got a Power Meter…Now What?
All other things being equal, the more power you can produce, the faster you can ride a bicycle over a given distance. That’s why increasing cycling power is so important for competitive cyclists and triathletes. While there are a variety of actions you can take to boost power, one of the best steps is the purchase of a power meter. However, a power meter only works if you know how to effectively use it in your training and racing. This webinar provides you with simple tips and strategies for using your new power meter. As a result of this session, you will be able to identify 5 major benefits of training and racing with a power meter, and describe terms such as functional threshold power, normalized power, training stress score, intensity factor, kilojoule, mean maximal power and power profile. You will also be able to make effective use of your power meter in a variety of training and racing situations.
