    I know that NP is not calculated for efforts < 5min so I was just wondering why there is an option in the Mean Maxiam charts to select NP for these efforts?

    Is it just a case of there is no benefit to disabling it or is there some merit to looking at NP for say a 3min effort ?

    I would discourage you (or anyone else) from calculating/viewing/considering/trying to interpret normalized power values for any effort <20 min in duration.

    OK thanks.

    I don't actually look at it but just wondering why I was able to select this option n TP.
