that measures from these devices are becoming of increasing
interest to scientists and coaches as a noninvasive approach to
understand how athletes are coping with training and competition.
The integrated internal:external-load ratio assesses the psychophysiological stress experienced by the athlete (ie, heart rate, RPE, blood
lactate, etc) during training in the context of the external training
load completed and can be used to infer on athlete training status.
For example, an increase in the internal load to a standard external
load may infer athlete fatigue or decreased fitness, while a reduced
internal load (a lower heart rate or perception of effort to a standard
external load) indicates that an athlete is gaining fitness and coping
with training. Furthermore, this may inform on the consequences
of training programs,59 identify fatigue during team-sport competition,60,61 and identify changes in fitness or fatigue status.62 However,
while practically attractive, the implementation of this approach
is limited unless care is taken in controlling and quantifying the
athlete’s external loads
63 and the environment in which the exercise is completed.


Edit - Oh yeah, and ERG mode allows accurate quantification and total control of external load.

Regarding Joe, do you agree that decoupling has merit? If so, we can proceed.

TrainingPeaks appreciates HR. So do I. We agree on this. End of story.
Not. I believe the judges have already spoken voluminously and negatively about using CD as a training goal. Not. It's something to be avoided, to be trained against having. It's not a good thing, not at all. All your posted information points in this direction. Whenever I notice drift, I try to get rid of it, usually by hydrating and trying to cool off. That's what it is mostly if one is in decent condition. You need two 24" box fans, 55°, shirt off, and 2 bottles of sports drink if you're going to be on the trainer for long periods.

You should definitely try my suggestion about TrainingPeaks, whether you continue with CD or not. You'll find it very informative.

That article has nothing to do with cardiac drift.
