Introduction to Power-Based Cycling Training

Potentiometers are here to stay. Coaches must adapt fast to this new reality, to take full advantage of a tool that offers us infinite new possibilities for analysis, control and planning of the athlete's performance. But it is not enough to use it: it is essential that coaches have a deep understanding of these devices and their metrics, in order to interpret them within the global context of sports training. In this course, you will learn the basic fundamentals of power training: how it works, what it is based on, what it is used for, how to use the main data, and much more.
