Ever been frustrated with contradicting training advice? Struggled to comprehend the complexity of exercise physiology? Or wondered how to put it all together in a training plan?
I know I have.
The above is a fitting summary of my experience with being an adolescent endurance athlete.
Always that nagging frustration of not truly understanding how to assemble the jigsaw.
Naturally, when I began studying human biology at university my reading quickly wandered off into the field of exercise physiology.
I soon started writing about what I came across, and voila, the Norwegian blog Wattkoden was born.
Four years, and upwards of 1,000,000 pageviews later, its English-speaking sibling Wattkg took its first stumbling steps into the big world.
This is the website you’re currently reading.
I am hoping you’ll find the site useful, thought provoking or at the very least an enjoyable read.

PS! I’ve also created a newsletter that takes you through my perspective on cycling physiology step-by-step.
