    Another Pro Endorsement of Power Meters

    This time from Mark Hekman:

    "But at the same time, I finally got a power metre [sic] and started training with that and it changed everything," he said. "I've never been so in shape in my life.

    "I've never been this fit - I lost 13 pounds from my race weight of last year, so I might go fast this year...I paid attention to the little things - diet, not drinking and doing all the intervals. I've been training with heart rate, and I was doing them all wrong. I'd go out too hard and then blow up. I was missing the benefit of the latter part of the interval." (emphasis mine).

    This had nothing to do with his improvement?

    I paid attention to the little things - diet, not drinking and doing all the intervals.

    Plus it's hard to mount an SRM on a penny farthing.



    Before you start, you can take your anti carbon anti power meter shtick over to the 41.

    I would ask you what your point is but then it's obvious you don't have one.

    i thought it was fairly low hanging fruit. --> even a fairly successful domestic pro has difficulty properly guaging effort without a power meter.

    they're all good, but joy division was special, and as you know: no joy division, no new order.

    I didn't see that article but it was interesting to read that such a successful domestic pro got a huge benefit out of a PM.
