A correct assessment of sports performance is key to plan the physical preparation towards the objective and to control the evolution of this preparation.
Today, control of training is as important as training itself. Being able to do a reliable and well-interpreted “stress test” (as it has been called for decades) is the starting point to a well structured training plan. That is the reason why we take performance assessment very seriously at 360 Cycling, and, after the biomechanics, it is the second step we recommend in our center.
Measuring and being able to repeat measurements. That is our key principle when performing physiological assessments, having fixed points during the season that let us see your evolution during the training process in an accurate way, allowing us to see if what is done matches what is planned. In that case, we will feel reassured and follow the plan. On the contrary, we will be able to change what we believe is keeping us away from our goals.
The process of integral physiological assessment includes:
