From a 400m race to an IRONMAN triathlon, the aerobic capacity - or VO2max - is the most important measure of performance.
Measuring VO2max is not something new. But with INSCYD you can now see how VO2max interacts with running and training performance:
You know it: decisive situations in a race depend on anaerobic energy supply! So why don't you measure it ?
VLamax has been a secret training tool for some of the most successfull coaches of the past decade:
With INSCYD, the only scientific validated measurement of VLamax is by default included in every analysis:
The anaerobic threshold of multiple world time-trial champion Tony Martin is well above 400 Watts. Yours might be only a fraction of this power. But why? What is physiologically different between you and Tony Martin? Which physiological system function differently from yours to enable that power? And what do you need to do in training to reduce this gap? With INSCYD, you can now find out...
INSCYD detects anaerobic threshold as per scientific definition: the max intensity at which lactate combustion matches lactate production.
INSCYD smoothly integrates efficiency into your portfolio with no hassle.
INSCYD detects the individual fat combustion rates with every performance analysis. Now you can create strategies to increase energy expenditure from fat, thereby enhancing athlete performance.
Start measuring fat combustion and utilizing your FatMax Zone with INSCYD:
IINSCYD allows you to understand precisely how each individual athlete burns carbohydrates. With this understanding, you can find the perfect level of fueling which will reduce fatigue and enhance performance.
Conventional assessment of carbohydrate combustion based solely on gas analyses has many limitations. Not only is it lab-based, but it is easily affected by acute nutrition status. Scientific research has shown that neglecting lactate measurements when assessing carbohydrate combustion from gas exchange data alone is misleading.
INSCYD adds lactate production to the assessment of carbohydrate combustion. The only way to produce lactate is by using carbohydrates, thus lactate production is directly linked to carbohydrate combustion.
In disciplines with a random interval-type work demand, such as cycling or football, repeated high-intensity efforts are unavoidable. Every bout of sprinting or attacking may result in lactate accumulation. Ever wondered why one athlete can recover much quicker then another? Well, here might well be your answer:
Monitoring athletes performance isn't simple. Measuring the overall outcome - speed or power only – won't tell you how the athlete achieved this feat. Observing the same speed or power on two occasions doesn't mean that any changes have not occurred. There are three ways to produce power;
Adaptations are not only specific to the workouts you prescribe, but also to the type of athlete. Two different athletes - with different metabolic profiles - can react completely differently to the same training stimulus. INSCYD helps you understand why.
