Presented by Charles Coaching & Nutrition Services
We're pleased to welcome back Aidan Charles and staff of CCNS. He and his staff will be performing a full day of LT testing Tuesday, January 15. There will be a no-charge clinic on diet and winter training at 7-8:30pm. To read more about the Riding to Losing Weight Seminar, see that event here.
Professionally administered performance testing will be held here throughout the day. Lactate Threshold (LT) testing provides insights into your current fitness levels, and through it, your ideal training zones (power and HR) are established. Each testing session is 90-minutes. 30 min of that is spent riding. Consultation to provide context for the test results is included. The cost is $139 per test session.
If you plan on getting any of this test done, make sure that you avoid a hard workout the day before your testing session. DO NOT exercise the day of the test. Avoid excessive use of stimulants, such as caffeine, before the test. Bring your bike and gear just as if you were going for a ride outdoors. Cancelations must be made more than 48 hours in advance. You're welcome to find a friend to take your spot if you can't attend your session.
Physiological testing is especially important for new athletes. Also, having baseline measurements in the dead of winter are great: then future performance gains can be measured and workouts can be properly planned. Find out where you're starting to see progress in the future! Also, having face time with a coach is valuable, he can answer your questions as you're being tested.
