Show Notes

Is there a better measure of threshold for cyclists out there than FTP? Yes! We think there is. Welcome to the world of critical power (CP), W’, and W’ balance- truly science-based measures related to the “anaerobic threshold".

While the advantages of CP over FTP are many, its determination is a bit more complicated than 95% of your 20-minute power. Because of this, we have brought CP expert, Jason Bartram, onto the show to help facilitate this two-part conversation about the best practice for utilizing CP in your cycling training and coaching. In this episode, we focus mainly on CP and the power duration curve.

Jason Bartram is the former Australian National Women’s Track Team coach, former sports scientist for AusCycling and the Australian Institute of Sport, and current PhD candidate studying critical power, W’, and W’ balance in elite track athletes.
