A power meter can unlock more speed and endurance than any other training tool―but only if you understand the data. This new third edition of Training and Racing with a Power Meter updates the comprehensive guide that was last published almost 10 years ago. Using this updated guide, any rider can exploit the incredible usefulness of any power meter.

Pioneering cycling coach Hunter Allen and exercise physiologists Dr. Andy Coggan and Stephen McGregor show how to use a power meter to find your baseline power data, profile your strengths and weakness, measure fitness and fatigue, optimize your daily workouts, peak for races, and set and adjust your racing strategy during a race.

  • New training plans to raise Functional Threshold Power
  • Over 100 new power-based workouts
  • New guidance for triathletes on pacing the bike and run

  • Methods to test power duration and pinpoint weaknesses in a variety of race distances
