Each race we undertake is a
test. It's a test against every other athlete in the race, answers
are instant and final. We will know at the end of the race if our
training has been good enough or not.
Wouldn't it be nice to find
Understanding how your body works and the physiological demands placed upon
it by training and racing can only make you a better rider. Endurance sports, of which
cycling is most definitely one, and excelling at them, centre entirely on
maximising your aerobic engine.
Testing allows you to quantify
what you have now and to re-evaluate it after a structured training
programme has taken place.
Our TAP protocol (Test, Analyse,
Plan) will allow you to create a baseline of your current fitness level by
carrying out a test specific to your needs.
From the results we can then analyse the data against
benchmarks and norms to determine specific areas of your training that need addressing.
plan can then be constructed to specifically
tackle areas that could benefit from improvement. Training this way becomes much more rewarding than
just "going out for a ride".
Why not try one of our testing solutions? For minimal
cost you can maximise your training investment.
Imagine the confidence
and motivation you can draw from quantifiably measuring your training
improvement, rather than leaving it to race day and chance.
Check out the Testing Protocol
page which will explain how
our tests are carried out. Then look through the
Testing Evaluation page
to determine which may be the best test for you. If you're unsure contact
us and we can discuss it together.
The value gained
from testing far outweighs the cost by orders of magnitude. If you
don't know where you are, how can you get to where you need to be?
