Melbourne cyclist, Runners and Triathletes. On Saturday morning (26th of January) we are conducting field lactate testing using the INSCYD system for a special once off crazy low price of $130. After the testing you will gain a full INSCYD report with your results including key metrics like VO2max, VLamax and lactate threshold numbers. Please note a Powermeter is required for bike testing. Spots are limited and need to be confirmed by 12pm Wednesday the 23rd. Contact us for further details or to book. #runningtraining #swimbikerun #ironmantraining #cyclingtraining #hoppersportsperformance
A podcast that’s definitely worth a listen. I was fortunate enough to be coached by the legend that is Donna for a couple of years as a cyclist at a real crucial time in my development. I learnt so much in my time under her which I still use today in my own training as well as coaching others. I’m still even doing the same ergo sessions from back then. I remember her saying when I first started with her “give it 2 years and it will click overnight”. Sure enough almost 2 years to the day I had a major breakthrough performance! #hoppersportsperformance #cycling #thehiddenathletepodcast #powermanzofingen #cyclingtraining
Race with confidence knowing your individually tailored pacing and fueling strategies. Not only can we gather value information such as VO2 max and VLamax from an INSCYD test, which allows a coach to train an athlete more precisely, we also provides the coach with information that can be used to provide detailed fueling and pacing strategies. Contact us today to find out more information and book a test. #ironmantraining #swimbikerun #runningtraining #cyclingtraining #ironmanfuel #hoppersportsperformance
Now available in Melbourne and Geelong: Testing with the world’s most advanced physiological performance analysis software! While many coaches and athletes rely on FTP testing to prescribe training, it fails to give the full picture of where the athletes at. After testing with INSCYD, we are able to target specific physiological areas to improve an athlete’s performance in a desirable way. #ftp #ironmantraining #swimbikerun #runningtraining #tritraining #cycling #ftptest
VLamax is something that athletes that are concerned about maximizing their performance should be very interested in. By just reducing your VLamax you can directly increase both Lactate and fat burning capacity without changes in VO2max. Here we can see that if an athlete were to reduce their VLamax from 0.7 to 0.4, their Lactate threshold increased 40watts and fat burning 170cals an hour! Contact us now for further information how to obtain your VLamax #ironmantraining #swimbikerun #runningtraining #tritraining #hoppersportsperformance #cyclingtraining
VLamax, one of the most important metrics you have never heard of. It is the maximum rate of production of lactate and gives you an insight into anaerobic energy production. The good new is VLamax is highly trainable and can be manipulated through the correct training interventions. The only to know your VLamax is through testing.
