Exercise Physiology Testing

Lactate Threshold

Lactate Threshold

£100.00

Description

A Lactate Threshold test identifies blood lactate transition thresholds which can be used to develop athlete training zones. These refer to the intensity you train at which can be given as a running speed, power output or heart rate. These thresholds are good predictors of endurance performance and are sensitive to training.

VO2MAX

Maximal Oxygen Uptake

£80.00

Description

The highest amount of oxygen an individual can use during exercise is known as maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) and indicates one’s aerobic potential. This is the gold standard measure of aerobic capacity. This test also measures your peak aerobic power or running speed along with maximal heart rate and the data can be used for setting training intensities. The test is a maximal test that will push you to exhaustion.

Lactate Threshold

Lactate Threshold + Maximal Oxygen Uptake

£160.00

Description

Pay for the Lactate Threshold and Maximal Oxygen Uptake tests together and save £20.

Running Economy

Running Economy Testing

£80.00

Description

Running economy (RE) is the energy required to run at moderate running speeds – this is assessed by measuring oxygen uptake. The lower the energy required (so lower oxygen uptake) to run at a particular speed, the better your running economy and the more efficient you are. It is a useful test to undertake at the beginning and end of a training cycle to gauge improvement.

Body Composition

Body Composition: Single

£45.00

Description

Using our BodPod, we can determine body fat percentage and fat-free mass (muscle, bone, organs). This is a highly accurate test which can detect small changes in body composition so can be used to measure the success of nutritional interventions and/or exercise programmes. Resting metabolic rate can be estimated too along with total energy expenditure.

Energy Expenditure

Energy Expenditure

£80.00

Description

Using our breath-by-breath gas analysis machine, you will wear a gas sample mask to allow respiratory measures to be determined which are used to calculate the number of calories you use at rest (resting metabolic rate) and during exercise.
