INSCYD Metrics

Carbohydrate Combustion

FUEL TO PERFORM

INSCYD allows you to understand precisely how each individual athlete burns carbohydrates. With this understanding, you can find the perfect level of fueling which will reduce fatigue and enhance performance.

  • Understand how your athletes use this precious fuel and adjust their workouts accordingly.
  • Add carbohydrate combustion analysis to your coaching service, and provide tailored nutrition plans to individual athletes.
  • Beyond training: use this analysis to add valuable coaching expertise on race day.
  • Perfecting intake of carbohydrates is trainable – coach your athletes to perfect their intake.
  • Beyond training: use this analysis to add valuable coaching expertise on race day.
  • Adjust pacing and prescribe a fueling strategy to avoid your athlete running out of fuel.

Be precise with your data

Conventional assessment of carbohydrate combustion based solely on gas analyses has many limitations. Not only is it lab-based, but it is easily affected by acute nutrition status. Scientific research has shown that neglecting lactate measurements when assessing carbohydrate combustion from gas exchange data alone is misleading.

 

INSCYD adds lactate production to the assessment of carbohydrate combustion. The only way to produce lactate is by using carbohydrates, thus lactate production is directly linked to carbohydrate combustion.
