Hopefully got this correct:
Upper right quadrant I - high force/high velocity - eg sprinting
Upper left quadrant II - high force/low velocity - eg climbing
Lower left quadrant III - low force low velocity - eg recovery
Lower right quadrant IV - low force high velocity - egsmooth pedalling but also found in crit racing
