The Performance Manager Chart

The Performance Manager Chart in TrainingPeaks and WKO is one of THE best tools athletes can use for their training and performance. Coach Frank busts out the pocket protector to explain and describe this impulse-response performance model. Athletes and coaches may use the model to plan training and therefore predict performance! One can literally design more watts into their annual training by using the PMC Chart. It also a dashboard to monitor training stress, training load, acute training stress and the almighty: form - the balance between your training load and short term daily side effects from training.

Frank covers everything you need to know about the PMC: what it is, why you should care about it, and most importantly, how you can use it to take your training and  performance to the next level!
