Physio bike fit with nutrition consultation, resting metabolic rate test and VO2Max test
A Physio bike fit with full cardio-metabolic fitness testing and nutrition advice based on results from the resting metabolic rate test. Full detailed reports from tests included.
The VO2Max test will measure :
- Vo2 Max (ml/min/kg)
- Anaerobic threshold
- Peak fat burning zone
- Fat burning efficiency
- Metabolic efficiency
- Muscle type (Type 1 : Type 2)
- Respiratory and cardio fitness
- Breathing Quality
The resting metabolic rate test is used to determine the proportion of energy that the client spends per day coming from carbohydrate and what proportion comes from fat. Knowing this ratio is a vital component in tailored diet and exercise prescription for weight loss. It will also give us an accurate calorie intake required for a client’s basic requirements, from which a suitable daily calorie intake can be determined.
If you are looking at making a nutrition plan for a race and you know what power output you wish to maintain for the majority of the cycle, then using metabolic gas analysis to determine the energy expenditure at this target power output will allow you to figure out how many calories per hour at this intensity are required.
The VO2Max test will also reveal your anaerobic threshold, and training zones can be established from this.
