Do I need to have a Critical Power to do a training plan?
Updated over a week ago

If you are interested in starting a Stryd training plan, you must have an accurate Critical Power. There are a number of ways to do that…

  1. The best way as a new Stryder is to do the ‘Intro’ plan inside of the Stryd app. This plan will guide you through workouts that will generate an accurate Critical Power while teaching you about Stryd and power training.

  2. Join any of our 5k through marathon plans and perform the time trial at the beginning of the plan for a reasonable estimation of your Critical Power.

  3. Continue your normal training while collecting Stryd data for a few weeks. If you have a variety of intensities and durations in your training, you should generate an accurate Critical Power. Read more here.

  4. Or, if you know how to perform a Critical Power test, perform a test, and manually enter in a Critical Power.

With an accurate Critical Power (or if you’re doing the ‘Intro’ plan), you’re ready to get started!
