At Robic, we do stress tests a bit differently
Long test protocol
We use a much longer test protocol, so we can determine your heart rate and strength zones much more accurately.
On your own bicycle
We place your own bicycle on a special ergometer, so that you can perform to the best of your ability on the bicycle that you are most familiar with. (Do you not yet own your own bicycle? No problem – just borrow one of ours!)
With lactic acid measurements
We conduct standard lactic acid measurements. In contrast to oxygen measurements, we use lactic acid measurements to determine whether you have made improvement, and in which areas.
Concrete racing recommendations
After the consultation, you can discuss the results in detail with someone experienced in bicycle racing. So you leave our office with your test results and concrete training tips.
Intended for accurately measuring your heart rate zones, determining your current condition and even your strength zones. The test protocol is custom-tailored to your own physiological characteristics. Includes BMI measurement.
Our stress test does not have a medical purpose and therefore does not apply for any reimbursements through your health insurance. Our medical tests can be found on this website under ‘Medical’. A medical VO2max test emphasizes on maximal efforts and is shorter and less precise in establishing heart rate and power zones. These medical tests our SCAS certified.
What to bring
– Cycling gear (shorts, shoes, sweatshirt)
– Towel (two: 1 for the test and 1 for the shower)
– Your own (clean) bicycle
– Make sure that you are well-rested when you arrive for the test.
Prepare the way you would for an important tour, cyclosportieve or race
Our other services
Racers especially may be interested in their aerobic capacities, but also where their anaerobic capacities lie. With a Wingate Test, we can measure your peak strength, lactic acid buffer capacity and fatigue index at maximum effort. Intended to measure anaerobic capacity.
Intended to identify exactly where your strengths and weaknesses lie.
