Aerobic Efficiency in .mobi?

Postby Björn » Fri Oct 02, 2015 4:09 am

I just discovered a new data field in .mobi: aerobic efficiency
Would you mind giving some information about the sense of it and how to use it for training evaluation and optimization?
Cheers,
Björn

Wow, you found that quick! :shock:

This was developed and released last night along with a lot of powermeter metrics. Look for a post on our blog and social media in the next few days.

The short explanation:

Aerobic Efficiency is a measure of the proportion of your power/speed to heartrate on a particular workout.

Long explanation:

For *similar* workouts (same sport, route, etc.) at the aerobic level (sub lactate/anaerobic threshold) it can be a way to evaluate the progression of your aerobic conditioning over a season.

Example:

Say you can put out 150 W at 150 BPM in May, but in June at 150 BPM you can put out 160 W. Your AE will show an increase in June. Or look at it another way... you put out 150 W but your BPM is lower - AE will also rise.

If you see the opposite - your power output stays the same but your heart-rate increases - it can indicate a possible problem in your aerobic conditioning.

For running (and others) we use your level pace (aka. "grade adjusted pace" or "pace equivalency on a flat/level course") instead of watts.

Currently we've got this on the workout detail page, and available as a column you can add in the workout list. We'll be adding it as a new analysis metric

You may know this in some other software packages as "EF" or "Efficiency Factor"
