World Tour level diagnsotics
360 degree athlete performance profile
Lab testing accuracy - brought to you
The performance you are looking for is composed of a variety of components and metrics, but if you only focus on FTP or heart rate zones you’ll miss accuracy, efficiency and ultimately your goals.
INSCYD takes into account, and connect to one another, the most important metrics for training purposes:
Lactate accumulation and recovery
Fat and carbohydrates combustion
VLamax (or glycolytic capacity)
Each of the above metrics measured by INSCYD is critical to performance and remember, each sport performance is predictable and can be broken down to these fundamental elements.
With INSCYD you can finally understand the interactions between your aerobic system and your fuelling needs. Do you wonder, “How much should consume per hour in order to maintain my performance?” With INSCYD, you'll know.
VO2max - The size of your engine
From swimming sprints to 90-minute football matches, the maximum aerobic capacity (VO2max) is the single most important performance metric that needs to be looked at.
As often misunderstood, VO2max is not restricted by only raw physical talent, but it can be trained to unknown maximums. VO2max is also a metric that responds quickly to training, so it needs to be monitored regularly.
When you start a training program with Panache Coaching , We will test your VO2max and we will plan a coaching plan tailored to increase it. Through our performance software we are also be able to:
Compare the effect of high-intensity trainings and endurance workouts on VO2max.
Evaluate the impact of specialised nutrition regimes to further increase VO2max.
Understand the impact of VO2max on fat oxidation and carbohydrate combustion.
VLAmax - Elite Coaches secret weapon
Although you might have never heard of it, VLamax is the single most important measurement to enhance your performance. VLamax is the maximum production of lactic acid in your blood and gives you a complete understanding of your anaerobic metabolism. VO2max is aerobic, now we know the anaerobic component, and it is every bit as important.
VLAmax can be looked at in two ways. From one side, a low VLamax would increase your anaerobic threshold, your fat combustion and it would shorten your recovery time from hard efforts.
On the other hand, a high VLamax increases the power available for attacks, sprints and short efforts. The anaerobic capacity can actually make the difference between winning and losing a race: the final lap, the final sprint, the final push – they are all decided by your glycolytic power.
Vlamax is the most important metric you should focus on and train according to. You may have never heard of it because up until last year it was used only by pro teams and national federations. But now its benefits are opened to everyone and you can finally start connecting all the dots that compose your performances: metrics, training adaptations, race predictions …
Don’t waste your time training the wrong way. Get tested with Panache Coaching, we know your VLamax and tailor your training according to it.
We can help you to create a training program tailored to improve this precious performance metric, to optimise:
Anaerobic Threshold (FTP Power)
Ability to recover from hard efforts
It is commonly known and accepted that there is a critical intensity (or power) as the highest intensity that allows for a “steady state” in your metabolism. People call this the anaerobic threshold, critical power or velocity. Everybody knows it exists and everybody wants to increase it.
The commonly used methods to determine the anaerobic threshold are based on empirical findings within a certain population. But this has let to a lot of misunderstanding around anaerobic threshold and has restricted its assessment to some non-specific protocols. The most significant shortfall on the empirical determination of anaerobic threshold is that it doesn't provide any insight on the reasons why the anaerobic threshold is what it is.
With an Inscyd test with Panache Coaching, you’ll get your AT tested according to its main definition: the maximum intensity at which lactate combustion equals lactate production. These tests will benefit you with an improved understanding of your own performances and how they’re composed. More precisely, you’ll then get to:
Know the influence of physiological metrics on your anaerobic threshold.
Reduce the standard error of determination of the anaerobic threshold to < 3%.
Calculate the enhancement of anaerobic threshold by improving a single performance metric.
