Maximal Testing

Aerobic (VO2Max) Testing

 VO2 max, also known as maximal oxygen uptake, is the measurement of the maximum amount of oxygen a person can utilize during intense exercise.  

Lactate Thresholds Analysis

 The lactate threshold is the point at which, during incremental exercise, lactate builds up in the blood stream at a level that is higher than resting values. The lactate threshold is a good predictor of sub-maximal fitness. 

Anaerobic Testing

 The Wingate test is a cycle test of anaerobic leg power, conducted over 30-45 seconds with 7-9% of body weight for resistance. 

Body Composition

 Skinfold measurement can use from 3 to 9 different standard anatomical sites around the body. The right side is usually only measured (for consistency)  to estimate body fat level by the measurement of skinfold thickness.

FMS Screens

 The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) if a tool developed by Cook and colleagues in 1997[1] to help clinicians and health care professions screen individuals for risk of injury and / or a dysfunctional or performance-limiting movement pattern. 

Sub-maximal Testing
