Power and Coaching with Hunter Allen

In the Nuts and bolts this week, I got on the phone with Hunter Allen, Cycling Coach, Co-Author of “Training & Racing with a Power Meter”, Co-Developer of Training Peaks WKO+ Software. Founder of Peaks Coaching Group and all around nice guy.

Hunter Allen is well known for his contribution to the analysis of power data, and applying that to training. There’s more to Allen than just power though, he has a well balanced approach to coaching an athlete as a whole, including mind, body and external factors. He refers to coaching as the artful science. So I wanted dig a bit deeper on that topic as well. We talk about this and more.
