Performance Testing Composition
My nutritionist/coach made arrangements for a performance testing composition. It was a two hour test: spinning on the bike, maintaining a cadence over 90 and cycling with harder gears. From this performance and blood samples of lactic acid, one can establish body composition, heart rate zones and power. I was able to see what my numbers are now, what they would like 20 pounds lighter. I am prime for baseline to tackle on the endurance for Deathride. When I am not with the team, I will be focusing on medium endurance, weight training and the Deathride diet.
