Vo2 Max testing
V02 Max is defined as one’s maximal oxygen consumption. Often considered the gold standard measurement of cardio respiratory fitness, V02 is affected by age, genetics, and training. Values are much higher in endurance trained individuals.
During the test we establish your most efficient training and racing heart rate zone, Lactate threshold zone and your Vo2 max.
Anaerobic Threshold (A.T.) represents how well you have trained your muscles to do endurance work, or, how much of your V02 you can tap into based on training. It is that point at which lactate is produced faster than it can be removed, leading to symptoms such as muscle cramping, burning, and fatigue. By increasing A.T. you are increasing the level of work you can sustain for long periods of time, as well as increasing the number of calories you burn per minute of exercise.
