Do You Have a Power Meter on Your Bike? Do you know how the number is generated?
I recently asked a large group of cyclists that use a power meter to tell me how the number is calculated on the readout. No one knew the answer. People know what 500 watts or 1000 watts feels like on the bike, but if you want to see the number improve you should understand how that number is derived or else how can you design a training program that improves this number?
Power requires force and velocity. Strength is your ability to generate a force and velocity is the speed of work being done. What are you lacking and how do you improve them?
You need to figure out where in that equation you have the biggest opportunity for improvement. If you really want to dig deep check out my book.
