Normative (Comparative) Data

triathlon performanceIn most sports, competiton provides an opportunity to establish where a given athlete 'is at' compared with his/her peers. Sports are conducted on a wide range of levels: from beginner to elite; from junior to senior; from local to international. While competition times and comparison with one's peers is the ultimate normative data, it is also useful to have some idea of where one sits with respect to some of the components which contribute to that competitive performance.

In this section of our website, we present some normative values for three components of The PEATS Program which may be applicable to your sport: Critical Speed, Critical Power and Technical Economy Index. These data are not intended to be definitive, but to provide a guide for coaches and athletes to assess current standings with respect to better-performed athletes, and hence to serve as a motivational tool.These values have been accumulated over many years, and while many may suggest that they are out of date, they do provide a benchmark that can be employed for some benefit. Critical Speed and Critical Power almost certainly have similarities to VO2max, where a good score is simply that: a good score. There hasn't been a large increase in elite VO2max scores after decades of its measurement. We propose that a similar case can be mounted for Critical Speed and Critical Power.

Over time, we hope that these tables may be expanded to include data from others applying The PEATS Program. To this end, we extend an invitation to you to submit your data for review. if you do have data that you would like to be incorporated into this section of our website, please contact us.
