Body Composition:
The measurement of body composition is the calculation of the portion of the fat and lean tissue components of the body. It is used to determine body fat percentage and then calculate a recommended body weight. The lab is equipped to do three different kinds of body composition testing: hydrostatic (under water) weighing, Bod Pod and skin fold calipers. Metabolic

This week was “fun day” for lab…if you consider an all out VO2 max effort fun…. We do get useful information tho! Did you know that you can use your VO2 to estimate your genetic ability for a 5k, 10k, or marathon? Google VDOT charts and check it out!

It’s lactate threshold (LT) week! completed a Vo2 max test while measuring ventilatory threshold (VT). VT and LT should occur around the same point, we’ll be measuring that this week.

This week we are measuring ventilatory threshold, the point at which breathing rate rapidly increases from exercise. This typically occurs near the lactic threshold so it can be a useful metric for developing training intensities.

.spiritedrunner came in for a lactic threshold test. This test allows us to develop individualized training zones and measure fitness. And yes, he is pretty fit right now.

If interested, contact us at [email protected]. We will be conducting a CO2 tolerance study over the next few months. Must be currently engaging in cardiovascular exercise.

How much oxygen can your body consume? We can measure it! Most ppl are between 2-6 L/min depending on genetics, fitness level, and age. The more oxygen your body can consume, the more work you are capable of.

10/08/2021

This week we measured oxygen debt and deficit week. In the beginning stages of exercise an oxygen deficit is created. This means you need to consume more oxygen post exercise. One of the main reasons for this excess post-exercise oxygen consumption is to replenish stored ATP-CP.

The Wingate test has been found to correlate with muscle fiber type. In this test we measured a high power output suggesting a higher ratio of fast twitch muscle fibers compared to slow twitch muscle fibers. Fast twitch muscle fibers perform well in explosive, high intensity, short duration activity.

It’s Wingate week! 30 second all out effort to measure our anaerobic work capabilities.
