    W/KG or Absolute for 5 Sec Power

    Which should a sprinter (crits, flat road races, endurance track) pay most attention to [1] absolute watts OR [2] watts per kilo? I'm thinking that [1] watts per kilo is less important than absolute wattage because, it seems to me that, how much air a person pushes is the real trouble when on...

    I've heard that track racers practice standing starts and I was wondering: * How does one practice these? * Can you do them on a road bike? * How many "starts" does one do? * How many times a week? * Are they good for anything other than training a standing start? Asked another way...

    How has does power develop over time?

    I'm attempting to asses gains in power that I've made over the last year and I'm finding more questions than answers. So, I thought I would ask the question "out loud", so to speak. * What kind of gains in power can one expect to see over a 3-5 year period starting from a couch-potato...

    Adapting Training to Terrain

    I’ve lately found it a little challenging to complete a training session exactly as specified due to the terrain. For example, 3 * 15 intervals on the flats. Given my location that can be hard to do; not impossible, but certainly boring. So, here are some questions for you: 1] When doing...
