PHYSIOLOGICAL METABOLIC TESTING 

The Physiological Performance Profile is a powerful tool to analyze, adjust, progress, and predict performance in in athletes. It tells us how and why you may be able to run at a given speed, finish a race in a given time, what type of fuel you utilize, how much fuel you may need, how efficient you are and much more!

PHYSIOLOGICAL METABOLIC TESTING

WHAT'S INCLUDED:

  • 1:30-2hr session 

  • 30 min follow-up Zoom call to review the report, provide implementation suggestions and answer any questions.

Detailed Report including: 

  • Metabolic markers (i.e. FatMax, LT1, VO2max, etc.) via blood lactate analyzer and gas exchange analyzer

  • Personalized training zones by power/heart rate/pace

  • Insights to improve metabolic limiters to achieve your goals.

  • Fat vs. Carbs fuel utilization at different intensities so you can match your energy needs.

  • Sweat Rate and Electrolyte Loss so you know how to properly fuel a given session/distance.

  • Performance predictor - compare your target race vs. what your metabolic profile would allow you to do today so you can improve your specific markers needs.

  • Insights regarding pedaling efficiency and/or running economy.

PHYSIOLOGICAL METABOLIC PROFILE

The profile identifies important performance markers such as: aerobic capacity, glycolytic capacity, lactate threshold, the energy cost of motion, fuel contribution (Fat vs. Carbohydrate), lactate accumulation & clearance, and more. Identifying these metrics will benefit your training schedule and boost your performance with a scientific foundation and a practical approach to your program.

 

This comprehensive in-depth look at the layers of your physiology will allow you to make more effective training & racing decisions ranging from what type of training may yield you greater fitness gains for your specific needs/goals, what sort of pacing you may need to achieve optimal performance or what type of fuel sources you may need given your metabolic system

Markers identified in your profile:

  • VO2max – maximum aerobic capacity

  • VLamax – maximum glycolytic capacity

  • Lactate Threshold

  • Accumulation of Lactate and how quick you can recover from it

  • Fat combustion aka FatMax

  • Carbohydrate combustion

  • Metabolic Efficiency – how much energy you need at a given speed/power

  • Fuel Contribution (Fat vs Carbohydrates)

  • Sweat & Electrolyte loss
