Comparative Data for Critical Power

OCI training

 

The Critical Power data presented below were all obtained using a K1-Ergo for the testing. The ergometer was modified by the manufacturer to simulate the Outrigger Canoe stroke characteristics for their testing. In all cases, testing was conducted by TPE Sports Coaching to determine Training Intensity Levels, and data therefore were not obtained for research purposes.
