Abstract

Metabolic power depends on mean force applied to the ground during a cycle , on rate of force application and on cost of force generation. This cost is constant at different speeds and describe the amount of energy spent to perform a Newton of muscular force In a sport where energy consumption, muscular capabilities and force application strategies can influence performance capabilities, the computation of cost of force generation could be a good index of performance ability.
