Dr. Andrew Coggan, Training and Racing with a Power Meter
ANDREW COGGAN, PH.D.
Andrew Coggan, Ph.D. Andrew Coggan, Ph.D. is the co-author and cycling scientist behind Training and Racing with a Power Meter. Peaks Coaching Group is honored to have Dr. Coggan as a consulting adviser available to our athletes on a limited basis. Andrew R. Coggan, Ph.D., is an internationally recognized exercise physiologist. He has published numerous scientific articles on a diverse range of topics, including the effects of carbohydrates on cycling performance, the physiological adaptations to endurance training, and the effects of aging on muscle metabolism during exercise. These papers have been cited more than 4,700 times in the scientific literature, with 15 of them achieving Citation Classic status (i.e., cited more than 100 times apiece). A national-caliber master's cyclist and TT record holder, Dr. Coggan is also widely recognized as one of the leading experts on the use of power meters, and is the originator of the normalized power, TSS, power profiling, quadrant analysis, and the Performance Manager concepts. In 2006, he was honored for these applied sports science efforts with USA Cycling's Sport Science Award and by being named as one of three Finalists for the US Olympic Committee's Doc Councilman Award.
Hunter Allen Seminars
This seminar explores the science behind and uses of the Power Duration Model designed by Andrew Coggan, Ph.D. Learning how to understand and utilize Pmax, Functional Reserve Capacity, and Modeled Functional Threshold Power form the core focus of this seminar, emphasizing ways to use these new metrics to improve planning and tracking of training programs to enhance the use of the Specificity Principle of training.
Efficiency and the Power of Pedaling Over the last few years cycling has seen an increase in available data and focus on pedaling. This seminar will focus on delving into measuring and improving the mythical efficiency in the pedaling stroke. New tracking metrics designed by Hunter Allen and Andrew Coggan, Ph.D. will be explored, along with testing and training protocols focused on advanced analysis and actionable improvement protocols.

Andy Coggan Ph.D.Andrew R. Coggan, Ph.D. - is an internationally-respected exercise physiologist who has published numerous scientific articles on diverse topics such as the effects of carbohydrate feedings on cycling performance, the physiological adaptations to endurance training, and the effects of aging on muscle metabolism during exercise.A national-caliber masters cyclist, he is also widely recognized as one of the leading experts on the use of powermeters in training.He was a featured presenter at the first ever power-based cycling training seminar held in the United States, and has written the chapter on power-based training for USA Cycling's Expert Coaches Manual.His prolific posts to the "wattage" mailing list hosted on topica.com have also enlightened many about the physiology of exercise and training in general, and the use of powermeters in particular.Normalized power, intensity factor, and training stress score, which are featured in the CyclingPeaks software, as well as the concept of "power profiling" to identify a rider's relative strengths and weaknesses, are ideas that he developed specifically as a result of his interactions with, and to meet the needs of coaches such as, Hunter Allen.Andy was also responsible for assuring the physiological validity of other aspects of the CyclingPeaks software, such as the default parameters for used in the graphs and charts.
