Name one.FrankDay said:Sure a measuring device can improve performance if it better motivates the athlete or provides a better measure of something important to concentrate on.
Can the Borg scale be used to determine what RPE a rider must use to win an individual pursuit?The question here is not whether measuring effort can result in improvement but whether one measuring tool (pm) is better than another (PE, HRM, stopwatch).
Can a HR monitor be used to tell a rider what HR they must sustain to win an individual pursuit?
Can a stopwatch measure the difference in performance between pursuits held on track in different weather conditions?
But the speedometer doesn't select the gear or choose the pressure on the gas pedal. Nor does the road sign.It may not give you that information but it certainly does me, especially when I am given a heads up by a new speed limit for a corner by a road sign.
Trolling.I would not be ignoring anything if anyone would simply show me where this decades of sports science research can be found.
Strawman.Show me that using a PM in the process makes a difference to the athlete. That is all I ask for. I understand the arguments as to why it should. Just show me some evidence that it does.
No we have said you are smart and educated which makes your actions in this forum all the more deplorable.You guys would rather come here and call me old and stupid rather than simply show everyone the evidence.
