20 Minute High Percentage of Maximum Minute Power Test

This is a test for experienced cyclists only (used only for Training Plans 4 & 5 of this Guide) and the Triathlon Winter Training Plans. It is usually conducted at 75-80% of maximum minute power (Zone 5 heart rate and power training zone) and measures improvement in sustaining a high percentage of maximal aerobic power.

This is a progress check test so cyclists should have first conducted the 3 minute aerobic test to establish maximum minute power and maximum heart rate to establish heart rate and power training zones. For a more detailed analysis consider live recording your tests in Wattbike Expert Software or transferring the data to the software for later analysis.

All your test results can be stored in the Wattbike Expert database for future comparison.
