The New York Times says Lance Armstrong can generate 500 watts
of power for hours at a time while bicycling up hills.
A typical endurance athlete of his weight generates about
300 watts during running. Lance started out average,
but increased his capacity over 15 years of training.
An adult at generates 75 watts just sitting,
hence why theatres need air conditioning.
One horsepower is 746 watts.
