Allen is in Boston from March 14 through March 24 promoting the newest edition of the book that, most would say, has launched a new era in the sport of cycling; Training and Racing with a Power Meter (TRWPM). The new edition will be available for purchase at the speaking event, and Hunter will have a limited number of autographed copies as well.
“Harvard holds a special place in the history of thought in the United States of America,” says Hunter Allen. “And it’s a great honor to be asked to speak about the very ideas and principles that have shaped so much of modern-day training and racing, not only on the road, but other sports as well like CX and MTB.”
Since the last edition of TRWPM, there has been almost ten years of new data. The data does two things: further verify the science behind the earlier editions and simultaneously point to new, exciting areas of research.
Topics to be discussed at the Harvard event:
- The latest power metrics: FRC, Pmax, mFTP, Power Duration Curve, and more
- Discussion of the new power tools chapter: Learn how power is measured from each power meter
- Discussion of the science behind the latest in power training metrics.
- Methods of power duration testing, a new testing method to pinpoint weaknesses for a variety of short- and long-distance race formats
- Training plans to raise your Functional Threshold Power
- New case studies: Masters and Triathlon
First published in 2006, Training and Racing with a Power Meter is the pioneering, cutting-edge guide that makes it possible for any rider to exploit the incredible value of any power meter. Coach Hunter Allen and exercise physiologists Drs. Andy Coggan and Stephen McGregor show how to use a power meter to profile your strengths and weaknesses, how to measure fitness and fatigue, how to optimize your daily workouts, how to peak for races, and how to set and adjust your racing strategy while you are racing.
Hunter will be speaking at several locations in the Boston area, including: Harvard University, Fit Werx, Assabet River Bicycles and several Landry’s Bicycles locations.
