Episode 83- Hunter Allen- Myths in Training with Power

Hunter Allen
Hunter Allen is known around the world for his work in helping make the power meter into the incredibly powerful training tool that it is today. His work with Dr. Andy Coggan to write the foundational book “Training & Racing with a Power meter” has revolutionized how cyclists and triathletes approach their training (and racing)….Yet there are still a few areas that have either misconceptions about, or straight up are being done incorrectly thanks to “common knowledge” (aka heresy!)
In this episode we cover what myths Hunter wishes would just DIE, when it comes to training with power:
– How unlike Formula 1 racing, where there is a “trickle down” effect of the technology, in cycling it’s a “trickle up and out” effect from coaches and amateur racers
– How power based training can allow you to ride WITHOUT staring at the numbers the entire ride
– Why the center of your training should be FUN, with numbers giving guidance to some of the ride, so you can get what you need training wise
– Why you DON’T HAVE to hit the exact numbers on every ride
– Why if you’re using power, you NEED a bike fit from a great bike fitter, to really help you harness & use those numbers
– The skills that EVERY cyclist must learn in order to improve. . . with or without power
-Why preventing poor habit from the beginning is integral to success
