av.mx Symbol for maximum average value over a continuous range of time. As a more specific example, the symbol SPE.av.mx_00:00:10 denotes the maximum average bicycle speed measured over a continuous time of ten seconds.
PowerCoach features three types of result tables for the quantities of such maximum average values within time series. Each of those tables, called PERFORMANCE MX tables, offers a set of 128 result values:
. PERF SPE [0:01] table, for example, discriminates 128 steps of 0:01 for SPE.av.mx time ranges up to 2:08.
. PERF SPE [0:16] table, for example, discriminates 128 steps of 0:16 for SPE.av.mx time ranges up to 34:08.
. PERF SPE [4:16] table, for example, discriminates 128 steps of 4:16 for SPE.av.mx time ranges up to 9:06:08.
Typically, high resolution tables of [0:01] are used to explore short time performances, like standing starts or sprints. Medium resolution tables of [0:16] are used to assess maximum aerobic power and anaerobic threshold performances. Low resolution tables of [4:16] reflect performances lasting up to several hours.
