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 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.
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.
Lateral Change of Direction Test
Teaching you the correct form: A personal trainer will guide you on how to perform exercises correctly and safely. If you’re new to the gym or new to lifting weights, getting the technique right is vital.
Hold an objective eye: When working out alone, you can’t always tell if you need to adjust your posture, position, or range of movement. Personal trainers monitor your form during your training and correct you if necessary.
Knowledge and experience: PTs must stay up to date with industry trends and training methods, which will save you time from doing all the research yourself.
Push your limits: Personal trainers are passionate and supportive, but they’ll also challenge and motivate you to push yourself further.
Hold you accountable: Sometimes, the toughest battle is getting to the gym. A personal trainer will hold you accountable; it’s not so easy to cancel the gym if you have a personal training session.
Design a training programme: Personal trainers will create a tailored training programme to suit your needs, abilities and goals. For example, if your goal is to lose weight, your programme will include specific weight-loss exercises. Your personal trainer will monitor and adapt your plan based on your progress.
What is Exercise Rehabilitation?
Exercise rehabilitation is a personally prescribed set of exercises that range from active movement through to strengthening exercises using therabands, body weight and resistance machines or free weights, dependent on the needs of the client condition & findings during the assessment.
Rehabilitation exercises aim to return full function following injury through re-building muscle strength, endurance, power and improving overall flexibility and mobility. Here at The Treatment Room, we understand that every athlete, sport and injury is unique, so we personally tailor each rehab plan to YOU in order to maximise your potential.
Exercise rehabilitation plays an integral part in recovery from pain or injury and in many cases the success of healing is attributed to undertaking a thorough & progressive rehabilitation plan. Your therapist will work with you to help you recover and prevent re-injury. Whether your aims are returning to marathon fitness or simply being pain-free, our therapists are able to tailor your rehabilitation to YOU.
