This article takes you step by step through all the functions to analyze your power data.
Power distribution by zones
If you want to make progression in a certain training zone, make sure that you train enough in the correct training zone to optimize your performance. Compare your planned workout instructions with the distribution by training zones to make sure that you executed your workout correct.
Power distribution by steps of Watt
The graph displays power distribution in volume percentage of total time that your power was in a particular range, defined by a customizable power range.
Check out the peak powers on a high-intensity workout or race. It helps you to pinpoint weakness and strengths.
|PP5''- PP20''||Neuromuscular power||Explosivity and sprint capacity.|
|PP30'' - PP1'||Anaerobic capacity||The most important minutes of an attack are the first 3 minutes. A good rider must be capable to hold on a very high wattage during the first minutes of an attack in order to create a separation from the field.|
|PP3' - PP10'||VO2 max capacity||Once a rider has made a separation from the field, the ability to holding this power to establish the separation is crucial. This kind of power determines if you can win a race or just follow the peloton.|
|PP20' - PP60'||Anaerobic threshold||Very important for a time trial, long hill climbs and the crucial phases of a race. The ability to produce a high wattage during a long time (up to 60-minutes) at a lactate steady-state level.|
Power distribution over time
What does it mean?
A block appears on the chart for a training zone, if your power averaged over the smoothing window falls in the training zone. The width of the block represents the time spent in the training zone and the height of the block represents your average power over this time. These blocks are displayed in the color of each training zone. For example, a block appears in your threshold zone if your threshold averaged over a window of 2 minutes falls within the limits of your threshold zone. As long as your averaged power remains within these limits, the block on the chart continues over time. The end of the block is where your averaged power drops out of these limits.
