INSCYD CRITICAL POWER TEST
INSCYD critical power test offers athletes a 360-degree view of your physiology. You will obtain a full metabolic and performance profile. The test result is a multi-dimensional model that includes all the relevant physiological components of performance. Your capacity to perform in any race and the way you should train to improve on that performance can be boiled down into the following metrics that you will obtain. Each of the below metrics is measured by INSCYD and is critical for your performance.
WHY TRAIN WITH INSCYD
PERFORMANCE IS NOT RANDOM
It can be broken down into a very small number of fundamental components. In cycling, we really don't need to think further than aerobic capacity (VO2max), glycolytic capacity (VLAMax), and aerodynamics. Functional Threshold Power (FTP, or the anaerobic threshold) is important, but it is to a very large extent determined by the combination of VO2max and VLaMax, so if we want to improve FTP, what we really want to be doing is improve VO2max or VLaMax. Only when we understand our own physiology and metabolic profile, can we really plan our training the most effectively.
OPTION 1 OPTION 2
Test can be done at BR Studios; Test can also be conducted at home. In a controlled environment On a smart trainer, or on your usual
cycling route with only a power meter.
STEP ONE: TIME TRIAL
This 2 day,1 hour test protocol will assess athletes over 4 different efforts. An all out 20 seconds seated sprint. 3 minute time trial, 6 minute time trial and finally a 12 minute time trial.
*Full detailed protocol explanation will be sent to each athletes upon signing up
HOW INSCYD TESTING WORKS
STEP TWO: RESULTS
Get your physiological profile, metabolic fingerprint and training zones
You will be sent a full report with all the metrics mentioned above. Included will be a few key charts that will help you apply the information in practice. For example, as training interventions or race nutrition plans. Importantly, you will also get training zones that apply to you as an individual
Test will be self conducted on a smart trainer or outdoors with a power meter.
Full post test result report and coach consultation
Sessions will be conducted according to athletes schedule inline with test protocol.
Fit file will be sent to BR post assessment for analyses and reporting
