Show Notes

Power profiling is a unique and massively important practice because it can answer so many fundamental questions related to an individual cyclist’s performance and training. For many, the term ‘power profile’ conjures images of Excel tables or bar graphs of mean maximal power data. However, these are just a couple of the many methods one could use to power profile a cyclist. Indeed, the practice of power profiling has evolved substantially since its inception well over a decade ago.

In this two part series we discuss power profiling with Dr. Peter Leo. Dr. Leo is a researcher, coach, and endurance training scientist at AusCycling. But more importantly, in the context of this series, he is the first author of a recent comprehensive scientific review on the topic of power profiling cyclists (written by coaches, for coaches). Peter guides us through the different methods used to power profile cyclists, recent advancements, and best practice. These episodes with Dr. Leo are certainly a must listen for any coach and/or serious cyclist!
