In cycling, critical power (CP) and work above CP (W’) can be estimated through linear and nonlinearmodels. Despite the concept of CP representing the upper boundary of sustainable exercise,

included TTE trials lasting less than 12 min. Conclusions: Estimations from CP3-hyp were found to be the most accurate, independently of TTE range. Models that include two trials between 12 and 20 min provide good agreement with the criterion method (for both CP and W’).
