The Lactate Threshold Test is a measurement of the body’s blood lactate response to exercise in conjunction with heart rate, oxygen consumption and intensity. It is one of the key performance indicators in endurance sports and can be used to establish training zones and pacing strategies.
The Maximal Oxygen Capacity Test, also known as VO2max test, measures the maximal amount of oxygen that you can utilize for your working muscles. Based on the maximum work (i.e speed or power) and heart rate you can achieve, it provides information on your training zones.
Power has been the best measure of performance in the cycling realm as it provides a very objective measure of work output. The ability to quantify allows us to identify your strengths and weaknesses as a rider and also to track changes as the racing season progresses.
