Vo2 max
VO2 max, also known as maximal oxygen uptake, is the measurement of the maximum amount of oxygen a person can utilize during intense exercise. It is a common measurement used to establish the aerobic endurance of an athlete prior to or during the course of training. It is one of several tests used to determine an athlete’s cardiovascular fitness and performance capacity.
blood lactate testing
A blood lactate test is a reliable guide to safe and effective training for athletes. It helps the athlete to avoid under or overtraining, which can lead to exhaustion. This is a hugely beneficial marker in the success, or otherwise, of an individual’s sports performance.
Lactate for an athlete is a source of fuel. The more an athlete trains, the higher their lactate threshold will be. Therefore, the higher the intensity of training, the more the body produces blood lactate at higher intensities. This onset of rapid blood lactate accumulation is known as anaerobic threshold or lactate threshold.
blood pressure
Blood pressure is the pressure of blood in your arteries – the vessels that carry your blood from your heart to your brain and the rest of your body. You need a certain amount of pressure to get the blood moving around your body.
Your blood pressure naturally goes up and down throughout the day and night, and it’s normal for it to go up while you’re moving about. It’s when your overall blood pressure is consistently high, even when you are resting, that you need to do something about it.
Body Fat Measurement
The body fat percentage (BFP) of a human or other living being is the total mass of fat divided by total body mass, multiplied by 100; body fat includes essential body fat and storage body fat. Essential body fat is necessary to maintain life and reproductive functions.
functional movement screen
The FMS is a tool used to identify asymmetries which result in functional movement deficiencies. The FMS aims to identify imbalances in mobility and stability during seven fundamental movement patterns.
1rm test
Considered as the ‘gold-standard’ test for measuring maximum strength or explosive strength in non-laboratory environments, the 1RM test can be conducted on a large variety of populations, from children aged 6+ years, to middle-aged patients with coronary heart disease.
