Testing

Roller Session

Rollers provide a valuable addition to the training armoury of any cyclist, regardless of experience. High cadence workouts on rollers are perfect for developing super-smooth, and efficient pedal stroke which is why Pro riders spend most of the winter working on rollers – it is what separates great riders from the merely good.

During a 1 hour session, you will be taught how to ride rollers like a professional cyclist, concentrating on key aspects of your pedal stroke to minimise dead spots at the top and bottom of each stroke and improving your balance balance, core stability and bike handling skills.

Strength and Conditioning

There are many reasons why you should add strength and conditioning into your training all year round. It has been shown to improve performance in both males and females across a range of endurance sports. High load strength training increases muscle building hormones that have also been shown to give the body a “feel good factor”

The order that the exercises, reps and loads etc increase or decrease must be gradual and controlled to ensure you improve safely and injury free. If you are planning for an event it is vital that your strength and conditioning reflects this so you are the appropriate weight / body shape for the event.

We will do an initial consultation with you and design a bespoke strength and conditioning plan for you with sessions that fit around your lifestyle and commitments. We have over 30 years of experience and are used to achieving pain free optimal performance outcomes in some of the most unforgiving professional sports in the world.

We will provide plans with on going assessments if required.

Lactate Threshold / Functional Threshold Power Test

Often referred to as “Anaerobic Threshold” as the intensity of your exercise increases, lactic acid is realised into muscles as hydrogen ions. Your breathing gets very rapid, you feel you need to stop and your muscles are starting to “burn”. Your speed or power when you are riding at this point is your lactate threshold.

We have designed a field test that re-creates these conditions, is very accurate and removes the need to pay hundreds of pounds for a laboratory test.

The session lasts for one hour and includes a Biomechanical assessment of your pedalling technique and riding style. We will give specific advice on how to maximise your efficiency and power through improved technique.

Aerobic Capacity Test

Aerobic Capacity (VO2max) is a measure of how much oxygen you use when exercising at sustained, maximal workload. How fast / how much power you can produce during this time is one of the best predictors of endurance performance.

We have designed a specific field test to measure your aerobic capacity.

The session lasts for one hour and includes a Biomechanical assessment of your pedalling technique and riding style. We can give specific advice on how to maximise your efficiency and power through improved technique.
