Testing - Sprint Power Test


If you score four or five, the quick application of force and lactate tolerance are among your strength areas. Average power output will vary throughout the year than will maximum power. While testing in the winter, for example, you may find average power relatively lower than in the summer when race fitness is high. That is because you quickly lose the ability to tolerate lactate in the winter when the body is no longer experiencing it. Extracted from Joel Friel's - The Cyclist Training Bible.

Sprint Power Test data from graph above, conducted on Cyclops spin bike:

-Speed max = 32.54 mph
-Speed avg = 22.27 mph

-Cadence max = 131 rpm
-Cadence avg = 90 rpm

-Heart max = 186 bpm
-Heart avg = 174 bpm

-Torque max = 23.73 nm
-Torque avg = 16.46 nm

-Power max = 896 watts
-Power avg = 579 watts

-Power watts/kg max = 11.28 watts
-Power watts/kg avg = 7.29 watts

Ranking scores:

Excellent = 5
Good = 4
Average = 3
Fair = 2
Poor = 1

Based on the above data this is how I currently rank:

-Ranking = Average for Senior Men
-Score = 3
-Maximum watts range = 800 to 949 (mine 896)
-Average watts range = 560 to 664 (mine 579)
