If you want to improve your cycling performance, then watt training is the most precise tool you can use to monitor, assess and achieve better results on the bike. Watts identifies exactly how hard your pushing your body, in the case of cycling it’s how hard and fast you push on the pedals. Watts measurement is unaffected by independent factors such as fatigue, altitude and caffeine intake which can affect your heart rate. Therefore heart rate is not as precise as watts in assessing your performance. Watts does not lie and you can compare your results from one workout to the next clearly identifying whether you’ve under performed or your fitness levels have improved.
