A compendium (plural: compendia) is a concise, yet comprehensive compilation of a body of knowledge. A compendium may summarize a larger work.
Gene Nacey with Cycling Fusion knows Training with Power - indoors and out. The Indoor Cycling Compendium for Power Training is a new ebook resource that Instructors can purchase to be well informed and comfortable communicating the finer points of Power Training into your classes.
Here's an excerpt from Sally Edwards' Forward to Indoor Cycling Compendium for Power Training
‘Power Training”™ is the first book to accomplish that goal. Everything else you read is focused on the outdoor rider, but Gene knows that it is the combination of the two that builds fit cyclists. His unique approach targets the IC rider specifically, as he shows you how the principles he uses inside also work outside. Training with power meters was once reserved for only the elite cyclist, but Gene has demystified it, creating a tool and a program that the average recreational rider can easily understand. He accomplishes this feat using an agnostic approach, inviting you to apply the information in this book to every manufacturer”™s power meter on every power meter—equipped indoor bike. As long as you have the data from the power meter, you can follow his comprehensive system. You”™ll love the charts and the workout tools in the book – each provides a way to translate the numbers on an IC power-meter bike into something tangible and easy to use for both the IC instructor or you, the rider.

It just keeps getting better Gino… In a recent post John talked about how our industry is screaming for a standard language (whether THEY know it or not). I’ve had the opportunity to read the compendium as well as the first eBook, Power Training. At least as it pertains to training with power you have done precisely that.
It is also simple utilizing only three power zones. Endurance, climbing and explosive.
The message for the instructors considering purchase is that this book is the only treatise on power training that relates so much of power training to the ever increasing number of indoor cycles that offer power metrics. If you teach on bikes with power this book is a must read.
Gene has done an awesome job in this version of tailoring his message to indoor cycling. Knowing Gene as the ultimate roadie, that was no trivial task.
