POW.av.mx Symbol for maximum average pedaling power over a continuous range of time. As a more specific example, the symbol POW.av.mx_00:04:00 denotes the maximum average (external mechanical) pedaling power measured over a continuous time of four minutes.
PowerCoach features three types of result tables for the quantities of such maximum average pedaling power within time series. Each of those tables, called PERFORMANCE MX tables, offers a set of 128 result values:
. PERF POW [0:01] table discriminates 128 steps of 0:01 for POW.av.mx time ranges up to 2:08.
. PERF POW [0:16] table discriminates 128 steps of 0:16 for POW.av.mx time ranges up to 34:08.
. PERF POW [4:16] table discriminates 128 steps of 4:16 for POW.av.mx time ranges up to 9:06:08.
Typically, the high resolution table of [0:01] is used to explore short time high power performances, like standing starts or sprints. The medium resolution table of [0:16] is used to assess maximum aerobic power and anaerobic threshold performances. The low resolution table of [4:16] reflects performances lasting up to several hours.
