An initial VO₂ Max test can clarify the precise target heart rates that will enable each individual to exercise more effectively, with less fatigue and fewer injuries. Periodic retesting provides motivating feedback as the fitness program progresses. Studies show that previously sedentary people training at 75% of aerobic power for 30 minutes, 3 times a week over 6 months increase VO₂ Max an average of 15-20%.
Anaerobic Threshold (AT)
Even though extensive training can sometimes cause an athlete to reach a plateau in VO₂ Max, you can still use your VO₂ Max test results to make further improvements in performance. This is accomplished as you push to increase anaerobic threshold (AT) and maintain that threshold for longer periods of time. This enhances both endurance and cardiovascular performance.
A VO₂ Max test determines the number of calories burned during every level of exercise. This is a scientific measurement of how many calories a person is burning during a day, and a vital piece to every training program.
Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR)
Metabolic rate is a measure of how much food, or fat, is converted to energy in a day. Resting metabolic rate (RMR) is the measurement of how much food, or energy, is required to maintain basic body functions such as heartbeat, breathing, and maintenance of body heat while you are in a state of rest. That energy is expressed in calories per day. So an RMR test shows how many calories you burn at rest, doing nothing more than sitting in a chair.
Functional Movement Screening (FMS)
FMS is the screening tool used to identify limitations or asymmetries in seven fundamental movement patterns that are key to functional movement quality in individuals with no current pain complaint or known musculoskeletal injury.
These movement patterns are designed to provide observable performance of basic locomotor, manipulative and stabilizing movements by placing an individual in extreme positions where weaknesses and imbalances become noticeable if appropriate mobility and motor control is not utilized.
The biggest reason to get a FMS is to lower your risk of being injured. Since good stability and mobility are the foundation of correctly performing functional movements, detecting any weaknesses here will help you avoid sustaining or worsening an injury. Studies have shown the FMS to be a reliable way to identify increased risk factors for injury.
