VLamax – Glycolytic Power

You know it: decisive situations in a race depend on anaerobic energy supply! So why don’t you measure it? With INSCYD, the only scientific validated measurement of VLamax is by default included in every analysis. Whether you prefer a simple (power or GPS only) field test, a lab test with lactate and a metabolic cart, or anything in between.

Start measuring what matters

  1. Identify whether glycolytic power is a strength or a weakness in your athlete.
  2. Project and find out which VLamax is needed to reach the desired goal.
  3. Monitor glycolytic power with INSCYD and change prescribed workouts to alter VLamax.
  4. Predict the impact of an altered VLamax on the performance, before planning a training regime.
