Our review

Not an easy read, but a comprehensive guide to getting the most from your power meter
Skip to view product specifications

Hunter Allen and Andrew Coggan are vastly experienced coaching and power meter experts, and this second edition of their book Training and Racing with a Power Meter is totally up to date in terms of hardware.


They’ve added a new chapter devoted to triathletes, who they rightly say can benefit more from power measurement and pacing training because of the longer, predictable, solo-focused nature of multisport events. Also new is a chapter on quadrant analysis, which explains how you can use the relationship between pedalling force and cadence to your advantage.

The authors use a mix of direct information and case studies, and it’s a comprehensive look at the technological and physical aspects of power and fatigue-based testing. It also includes coaching and training sessions to target weaknesses highlighted by the data.


The acronym and scatter-diagram-rich, detailed text takes some chewing through. But if you’re determined to make proper use of a power meter it’s essential reading.
