TESTING & SCREENING
Performance testing and screening are an important part of an athlete’s training process. Testing allows us to determine your baseline and properly assess limitations to develop a strategic plan around your training.
PNOE V02 MAX
Performing a metabolic analysis allows us to understand how your body utilizes fats and carbohydrates as energy during exercise. By assessing the body's use of oxygen during a VO2 max test, we are able to identify areas of weakness and formulate a training plan catered to your performance goals and your aerobic limitations.
Through V02 max testing, we are able to analyze:
Your V02 Max and Peak
Physiological adaptation to various exercise intensities
Your body’s ability to use carbohydrates and fats as an energy source
Heart Rate that results in maximal fat oxidation (Fatmax)
Accurate Heart Rate Zoning for training intensities
PNOE RESTING METABOLIC RATE (RMR)
Your resting metabolic rate (RMR) is assessed during a period of complete inactivity, the information that is obtained determines your base metabolic rate and the calories you burn during daily activity. With the help of a Dietician, this information can be used to determine an individualized nutrition plan.
We use Functional Movement Screens (FMS) and Selective Functional Movement Assessments to further identify performance limitations due to mobility and stability deficits. This data allows our physiotherapists and strength and conditioning coaches to collaborate on your movement intervention program.
BASELINE CONCUSSION TESTING
Baseline measures are important to have prior to any head injuries sustained during the season. Knowing how your body functions when it is healthy will help determine when it is ready to return to sport following a concussion. Baseline Testing is a battery of tests that measures every area of brain function and should be conducted annually at the start of the sporting season in order to have a comprehensive understanding of your healthy state.
