What will I get from the test?
Everybody that does the test will receive a printout of their unique fitness profile and the information you need to take your training and performance to the next level. In the 7 Page printout you will be given a Vo2 score, we will be able to identify your max heart rate, Aerobic and Anaerobic thresholds to the exact beat and watts, your 4 unique training zones, recovery times, calorie expenditure to suit all zones. We will be able to get a very detailed look at your fitness profile and how efficiently your heart and lungs are preforming, breathing patterns and ventilation. We will also track all watts and cadence throughout the test and work out your FTP and max wattage.
How is the test done?
The test will be performed on your own bike on a Le Monde Turbo (provided by tester). You will be hooked up to the equipment via a mask and also you will be wearing a heart rate monitor. The intensity will increase at 1-2 minute intervals through watts in order to raise both oxygen consumption and heart rate. The minimum the test can last is four minutes and the maximum the test can last is 20 minutes. The time on the bike is up to you, we want you to keep going until you have reached maximum effort and wattage begins to fail. Times will vary depending on fitness levels. Once you cannot go any longer we will do a 2 min recovery while you stay hooked up to the equipment. After that we will get you off the bike and go through your results.
