Training and Racing with a Power Meter brings the advanced power-based training techniques of elite cyclists and triathletes to everyone.

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 in this third edition:

  • All-new power metrics: FRC, Pmax, mFTP, Power Duration Curve, and more
  • Two new power-based training plans for masters cyclists and triathletes
  • New training plans to raise Functional Threshold Power
  • Over 100 new power-based workouts
  • New guidance for triathletes on pacing the bike and run
  • New case studies on masters cyclists and triathletes
  • Methods to test power duration and pinpoint weaknesses in a variety of race distances
  • 100 newly illustrated charts

Training and Racing with a Power Meter, 3rd Ed. is the definitive, comprehensive guide to using a power meter. Armed with the revolutionary techniques from this guide, cyclists and triathletes can achieve lasting improvements and their best performances ever.

Hunter Allen is one of the world’s top experts in training with power meters. He is a USA Cycling Level 1 Cycling Coach, owner of the Peaks Coaching Group, and a former professional cyclist with the Navigators Team. He has been coaching endurance athletes of varied experience levels since 1995, and his athletes have achieved more than 1,000 victories and numerous national and world championship titles and medals. Allen has analyzed thousands of power-meter files. His efforts to help athletes and coaches communicate training information helped develop TrainingPeaks WKO+ software. Allen has been teaching USA Cycling power meter certification courses since 2005.

Andrew R. Coggan, Ph.D., is an internationally recognized exercise physiologist. He has published numerous scientific articles on a diverse range of topics, including the effects of carbohydrates on cycling performance, the physiological adaptations to endurance training, and the effects of aging on muscle metabolism during exercise. A national-caliber masters cyclist and time trial record holder, Dr. Coggan is also widely recognized as one of the leading experts on the use of power meters. He is the originator of the normalized power, TSS, power profiling, quadrant analysis, and the Performance Manager concepts. In 2006, he was honored for these applied sports science efforts with USA Cycling’s Sport Science Award and by being named as one of three Finalists for the US Olympic Committee’s Doc Counsilman Award.

Stephen McGregor, Ph.D., is an exercise physiologist and USA Cycling instructor. He is Director of the Applied Physiology Lab at Eastern Michigan University and a USA Cycling instructor who teaches coaches about physiology, general training, and training with a power meter. McGregor also coaches for Peaks Coaching Group. His own experience, first as an elite cyclist and more recently as a masters-level athlete, helps him keep the science and data analysis grounded in the day-to-day concerns of training and racing.
