Joe, what do you think about this article

Base a new definition:

Gavin - There is no "one way" to train that is clearly better than all others. There are many ways and are dependent on who the athlete is and his/her unique circumstances.


Do you use average W / average HR for all P:HR ratio calculations? For steady state Z2 workouts average and normalized power are the same, but for 3x20min zone 3 workouts, normalized power is higher than average watts (at least for me using a Joule 3 head unit with PowerTap). Would you use NP for evaluating improvement over time for that?


Joe Friel

Hi Madeleine - I use NP for everything.
