We don't want to CALCULATE anything. We want to estimate. Even power meters do some fudging in their CALCULATIONS. The difference between a power meter and what I do is that their estimate is a lot better than mine.
I checked out the analyitical cycling site and it is just as much mumbo jumbo as you have posted.
Give us something we can USE to estimate energy expenditure that doesn't require a website, a calculator, a $1000 worth of power meter, or a degree in physics.
Maybe *you* don't want to calculate anything, maybe others don't too. I don't know, and i doubt you do too. I supplied some information to help anyone reading the board, so that they could figure some things out for themselves. If you don't want to look at sites like analytic or whatever then that's your perogative.
I'm sorry that you feel that what i wrote and analytic was mumbo jumbo. i appreciate that. however, i'm more than happy to try and help out if you want, or anyone wants.
I don't understand why you'd want incorrect data for energy expenditure? I assume that you might be basing your dietary requirements on this figure? If the figure (EE) is out, then your diet will be too.
If you don't want to use a power meter, and aren't interested in help, a calculator or a website, then your best bet for estimating EE is to probably just think of a number, because that's about how accurate the HR monitors are for estimating EE.
