Does anyone know how to increase power output?

  1. Hello,

    i Just wanted to know how to increase power output? At the moment I’m inputting 900w however I want to potentially increase this to 1000w?

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Put yourself in a higher gear, so you’re working harder to pedal.

    Listen to the third but last TrainerRoad podcast. MTBs putting out over 1000 watts on sprints. Megatastic!

    Yes, good point, hadn't considered sprint and had discounted track. Maybe the OP will be able to clarify for us.

    I was using a wattbike lol sorry for the miscommunication. And it was based on a peak power test. I should have clarified that

    Yes you are correct it was a sprint peak power test on a watt bike that I was referring to. Sorry about the miscommunication

    My first question is why? Are you in training for something in particular or just trying to hit an arbitrary number for a sprint? If you want to be an all round better cyclist then a high peak power will not necessarily help and in fact can indeed hinder you.
