Benefits of Performance Testing

No matter what your goal or level, performance testing can benefit all riders whether your goals are racing or improving performance in centuries. Testing provides you with a blueprint of what type of athlete you are and a benchmark of your current fitness level. Using this valuable information and knowing your goals, an accurate training program can be applied and lead to improvement.

The formula’s of the 1970’s (e.g. Max heart rate (HR) = 220 - age) were developed by researchers and do not apply to the majority of the population. Performance testing at AthletiCamps will provide you accurate data, giving you the assurance that your training program is set up for you. Plus, it’s just plain old fun to be testing in a lab, just like the professionals!

Testing will provide you with these valuable results:

      • 7 heart rate and power training zones
      • Wattages at threshold and peak of power
      • Body composition
      • Watts per kilo of body weight at threshold and peak
      • Detailed review of testing results
      • Specific workouts using your training zones
      • Training consultation

Alot of different programs (books and other coaching programs and camps) have you do “field testing” to determine these parameters.  At AthletiCamps, you will come away with the security that your program is based off of your unique physiology and not created from guess work.
