Anaerobic Threshold Test:
This test ultimately has the purpose of assessing your aerobic metabolism, identifying heart rate zones and mechanical power values that characterize the different training areas, and also to evaluate and monitor an athlete’s shape over the course of a season. This test is carried out in the studio, in a controlled environment, with the athlete pedaling on their own bike mounted on an electromagnetic brake roller (with externally managed resistance).
Starting from an established intensity based on the type of athlete, age, sex, body mass and training status, the cyclist performs an incremental exercise, pedaling at a constant cadence, until exhaustion. At the end of the test, the heart rate and the power produced are assessed to determine the athlete’s anaerobic threshold.
Power / Cadence Test:
This is a series of short-duration tests (5s) that allow you to determine the power to cadence and pedal force frequency. This information is obtained through testing performed on a specific roller and is very useful in analyzing the subject’s strength and velocity of muscle contraction, as well as determining the optimal cadence at which maximum power is produced. This consequently allows for the most specific strength training workouts to be developed.
Wingate Test 30s:
Maximal “all-out” test while remaining seated on the bike mounted on a roller for a duration of 30”, a 30” spin. This test allows you to measure peak sprint power as performance decreases during the test. This type of assessment investigates the anaerobic lactate metabolism, obtaining a measure of lactate capacity.
