One of the comments I am getting lately is a comment I get since over 30 years by now.
It started out far before we had in Northamerica the idea of wattage as the ultimate way of objective repeatable information.
1. I do not argue against this as it is absolutely true.
But first I like to correct a small information gab we have on this website.
The wattage idea on the market.
We worked with wattage ideas now already over 40 years back. The equipment was just slightly more complex. See pic.
So who would use this today when we look how technology has improved.
Nevertheless we still use VO2 max from this time see pic 2
Okay lets' move the antic " classical" to the side and look how incredible a NIRS assessment can show the reaction of our body as a physiological system,
This are 2 loads with equal wattage at a recovered stage.

Than yous see a full workout combined with classical idea of stable wattage and connected to NIRS. The circle is a section in the warm up with three all out sprints.
Than followed by an interval workout with fixed wattage.
and fixed recovery.
Once you are getting familiar with MOXY you will be able to read a lot of information's out of the physiological behavior in an athlete . If you look at wattage only you do not know what he may had to adjust to complete the interval.
Here some ideas on what you look.
Yellow here is tHb and green is SmO2 trend or Hb Diff in portamon.
You look on de-loading and reloading levels.
as one important part on this type of a workout.
Than you decide after that, whether you actually created a stimuli and one you may have tried to reach or whether you simply accomplished a big load of interval sections with a very small metabolic stimulation and or overload.
