EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY TESTING
Data for Targeted Training
At the foundation of our training programs is exercise physiology testing which enables us to identify your physiological profile and tailor a training program to your specific needs and weaknesses.
VO2max - A direct measure of cardio-respiratory strengths and limitations. VO2max identifies maximum oxygen consumption, heart rate zones, aerobic and anaerobic thresholds and carbohydrate and fat burning efficiency.
Anaerobic Threshold - A measure of the critical point when lactic acid production equals your body's ability to remove it. This test is also known as the lactate threshold test which provides important data for racing and workout intensities.
Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR)
At Peak Power, we believe sustainable weight loss starts with understanding how your body uses energy. Our Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) testing program is designed to maximize sustainable weight loss.
Your RMR is the minimum number of calories you need to consume per day. We'll establish your baseline calorie goal, carbohydrate and fat consumption percentages and resting heart and respiratory rates.
RMR testing accurately measures the effectiveness of your current diet and exercise regime. Based on your test results, we'll recommend a nutrition and exercise program tailored to your weight loss goals.
Anaerobic Power and Capacity - Instantaneous power measurements utilizing our high performance Velotron Bikes.
Wingate - Specifically designed for power sport athletes, the Wingate Test determines your leg power, capacity and fatigue resistance. The Wingate is performed on our Velotron Power bikes.
Critical Power - Ideal for power sport and power-endurance athletes, critical power determines your optimal sustainable workload. These tests are performed on our Velotron Power bikes.
Velotron SpinScan - An accurate measure of pedal stroke efficiency, left and right leg balance and power.
Body Composition - An estimate percent body fat and overall lean muscle and fat masses using the Harpenden Skinfold Caliper Method.
Speed / Power Testing - Exact measurements for sprinting (infrared timing lights), vertical jump (Hawkin Dynamics Force Plates) and agility.
Blood Lactate - Exact measurements used to accurately determine heart rate training zones.
Healthy Lifestyle Testing - Includes Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR),Movement Pattern Analysis (MPA), and Functional Movement Screen (FMS)
