My numbers aren't inflated.....
But they are only low because my stem and frame aren't stiff enough to withstand my full power. :thumbup:

20min 270w / 4.1
5min 317 / 4.8
1min 410 / 6.3
5sec 1020 / 15.4

5min and 1min are plucked from races. Have never done a proper test. I figure they’d be pretty close to my best though.

I think its time I retested my 5min power... changed my 3min power from 384W (6.29W/Kg) --> 430W (7.04W/Kg) the day after a race :?

More of a triathlete profile with about 75-77kg fight weight.
Never used power meter in races, this is training only data.

And to add to the data. From my 40km TT on the weekend (first one in two years!) and some sprint training earlier in the week:-

Weight: 84kgs
FTP: 236 - 2.8w/kg
5 min: 251 2.9w/kg
5 sec: 1340 15.9w/kg

Mainly working on the last one, it's taken the biggest hit over the last 2 years. Used to be close to the magic 20w/kgs :(

Wait so you are the most dogmatic poster about threshold work and base training, yet have the lowest FTP and 5 minute in the entire thread? L-O-L

I don't get it. Oh wait, I must have pro level power to talk physiology and training? Ah of course. That's it. Yeah, I'm also fat and have never raced before. I'm just a weekend bunch ride warrior. Oh the humility!

Facepalm!

Not too sure where the link is between power on the ability and ability to understand exercise physiology and biomechanics.

I too have rather average power but have attained post grad qualifications in sports and exercise medicine. If you want to feel bad about your power I can post the profiles of some of the guys I coach who have stood on the podium at World Champs this year.

Its more of a joke, but I guess unless the poster has some physio background that is uncited or is perhaps a coach with a unique nom-de-plume I find it amusing. It would be like me recommending sound race tactics to others. :oops:

When Eddy Merckx tried to be a Director Sportif he was pretty average at it.

Do we have to smoke to truly appreciate it is bad for us? My wallet and lungs are kinda hoping that I can just take the advice of an appropriate expert in the area.
