Hey folks - I was wondering if anyone had come across any repeatability benchmarks, that would help identify limiters. Could be a useful input into whether it’s time to work on raising a portion of your power curve, or working on hitting that power multiple times.
For example - the Coggan power profile (good example here: https://www.cyclinganalytics.com/blog/2012/06/watts-kg-on-the-power-curve) is really helpful in showing things like, my 1 minute power is lower than my 5 minute power on a relative basis so I should work on that. But I was looking for something similar for repeatability. An example would be, “you should be able to hit 80% of your personal best 10 times”, so if my best 1 minute power is 500 watts, then I should be able to do 10x1 minute at 400 watts (just making that example up). If I could only hit that 400 watt target 5 times I would work on more efforts at that level, but if I could do it 15 times then it’s time to raise that 1 minute power.
