performance diagnostics

The sports-scientific performance diagnostics with lactate determination serves to survey your athletic performance, monitor your performance development and adapt your training.

This examination does not include any medical clarification, should only be carried out in good and checked health and is therefore suitable for athletes without medical questions.

During the preliminary discussion with our sports scientist, a detailed training anamnesis of the last weeks and months of training is collected. This is followed by performance analysis on the bike or treadmill under sports science supervision. You can carry out your lactate diagnostics on our high-performance treadmill, on the bicycle ergometer or on your own bike.

In this step test with lactate and glucose determination, your current performance and performance development since the last diagnosis is recorded. After evaluating the data and adjusting your individual training heart rate ranges, the results of the analysis and further training will be explained as part of the detailed sports science consultation. You will receive training recommendations individually tailored to you, your time budget and your personal goal or, if required, an individual training plan. Sports medicine performance diagnostics gives you the security of training in such a way that the benefit for your health is as high as possible.

spiroegometry

The sports-scientific performance diagnostics with lactate determination and spiroergometry expands your examination by determining the respiratory gases (O2 and CO2) under stress. By combining lactate and spirometry (the gold standard in performance diagnostics), we also determine your FATmax range and your carbohydrate requirements under stress. In addition, we determine your metabolic and ventilatory thresholds and determine your VO2max – the maximum oxygen uptake capacity, the gross criterion of performance.

You can also carry out this examination on our high-performance treadmill, on the bicycle ergometer or with your own bike. As part of the detailed sports science consultation, you will also receive training recommendations tailored to you, your time budget and your personal goal or, if required, an individual training plan. We only use the most modern devices in our practice, which are regularly checked for validity and measurement accuracy. Our employees work with the latest scientific know-how, have many years of experience in performing performance diagnostics and in creating training recommendations and training plans.

The first training phase begins with the weekly return of your completed training programs, individually created by our specialists, to your assigned consultant. Your supervisor analyzes and edits the programs and adapts them to your performance development. They can contact your supervisor by e-mail and/or telephone.

This also includes:

This is followed by the evaluation and coordination of further training.

The second training phase continues as you complete the training programs in lively exchange with your supervisor and feel the progress. Direct contact with the supervisor will make it easier for you to overcome any low levels of motivation, and your fitter body will thank you for it.

After that follows again:

Plus the evaluation and coordination of further training.

Force adjustment via blood parameters

Research conducted over the past thirty years has resulted in increased efficiency of the endurance method by measuring strength building by determining lactate concentration and glucose levels as a function of count
– the repetitions
– the number of sets
– breaks
– the general aerobic condition,
monitored during training. It is recommended that a blood sample be taken to provide more accurate data on the exposure to which the athlete should be subjected.

Periodization and Cyclization

The principle of periodization and cycling refers to the systematic and planned design of the training process with the aim of achieving peak athletic form at a specific point in time.

If an athlete constantly trains at the limit of their resilience, there is a risk that the organism will permanently slip into a catabolic phase. To avert this potential danger, phases are deliberately built into the periodic training in which the top form is temporarily lost. This is done by reducing the training load, for example in the form of lower training intensity, reducing the scope of training or other types of stimuli.

A periodized training therefore means that the training program is systematically changed in certain periods of time. The systematization is done by changing various training variables (repetitions, number of sentences, length of breaks, exercises). This planned change in training requirements leads to a long-term and sustainable improvement in performance.

Volume and intensity are inversely related – the larger the volume of training, the lower the intensity needs to be, and vice versa. Alternating from training phases that emphasize volume to phases that emphasize intensity brings progress. The phases of reduced physical stress can also serve to prevent and heal injuries. In the light phases, minor injuries have the opportunity to heal and the entire body is prepared for the following heavy un

Periodization in strength training

After some time, the body adapts to certain loads during training, so that performance no longer increases. A long-term increase in performance can be achieved by varying the load u2013 periodization.

Optimally, the training methods are changed every three to ten weeks. The more advanced the athlete or the higher the performance, the shorter the phases should be designed.

It is recommended to adhere to the following order in the training plan for training strength skills:

Strength endurance - Hypertrophy

Not all exercises have to be changed in each cycle, especially for beginners, changing the intensity of the load and thus the repetition range is sufficient. Before strength training beginners move weights at high intensities, the execution of the movement should be mastered. IK training should always take place under the supervision and assistance of the trainer. The training periods do not all have to be of the same length. Rather, the recommendation for the duration of the respective phases should be based on the speed and persistence of the physiological adaptation processes. For example, the hypertrophy phase may last longer than the IK phase because the neural system adapts faster than muscle morphology. After two weeks of specific IK training, only minimal performance increases can be achieved at the neural level.
