Quantification of Training using power outputs

Nov 9, 2009
Visit site

I am starting a PhD in relating the effect of training on performance, looking at it from a Statistics and Operational Research point of view.

I was wondering if any of you had a method, or knew of methods, to quantify a single session in terms of power.

As you can appreciate, power outputs in a training session fluctuate, so I am interested in knowing how people define the work done in a training session when viewing Power outputs, or Heart Rate for that matter.

Any help would be gratefully received.
