This article is pretty helpful, but there are a decent number of scenarios not covered. For example, my understanding is that V02max percentages are not perfect, and we don’t have to hit prescribed numbers for a benefit.
In that instance, it would be great if we were trying to hit a range for training benefit rather than an exact target. I think the same is true for threshold, albeit, less guessing, and then sweet spot even tighter.
I think the coloring on the power bar corresponds with this to some degree, as does the round circle, but I am not exactly sure how they coincide, and suspect they could be used to greater effect.
For example, I think the color bar has too much variation too it. I’d prefer to see it be green, yellow, and red, rather than such a continuous change. I’d also prefer to know (or see implemented) if the radius of the circle tracks with the right ranges needed to get the training stimulus.
Knowing that I’m in the right range for a training stimulus without having to think to much would help ease the mind while I’m doing really hard to complete workouts.
