Glossary

bobble

"Bobbles ain't baubles"; a slight mistep or wobble which if repeated may reveal a significant dsyfunction that must be remedied before top performance can be achieved

engaged rollover

turning the crank arms over (using either leg or both) with various levels of pedaling pressure while being careful poor movement is not masked by support pressure in either pedal or against seat and/or handlebars (power meter can be used to confirm levels of pressure)

Functional Threshold

(FT) the strongest level of effort you can maintain forever and just slightly below the level that would finish you off rather quickly

pop-drop

quickly establish a given watt average then control the drop to a lower given watt average before again checking power meter

pop-interval

attempt to hold an average target watt by feel for a given time before checking power meter

pop-top

quickly establish a given watt average then control the rise to a higher given watt average

pop-watt

attempt to hit a given target watt by feel before checking power meter

re-pace

return to working speed when focus on an exercise has allowed pace to drop below stability

rolls

ankle rolls

strength

a fat person dreaming of doughnuts

strength training

a fat person begging for doughnuts

t @ P/W

the quasi-mathematical formula which is the basis for methods outlined in Cycling Performance Simplified and meaning the time (t) which a given number of power in watts (P) can can be maintained at a given body weight in kilograms (W) and codified in the Super Simple Power to Weight Calculator

wiggles

alternating hip elevation laterals with resting seat

zero G rollover

turning the crank arms over (using either leg or both) with absolutely no pressure on the pedal to be used as check for seated stability, full range of movement, and correct smooth tracking
