What Does The INSCYD Power Performance Decoder Measure?

With an INSCYD Power Performance Decoder test you will gain the following insights.

  • VO2max
  • Anaerobic threshold
  • Lactate accumulation and recovery
  • Fat and carbohydrate combustion
  • Recovery
  • VLamax (or glycolytic capacity)
  • Specific nutrition requirements at varying intensities
  • A full INSCYD zone profile to help guide your training and racing efforts
  • A more comprehensive breakdown than you’ve ever had before!

INSCYD accounts for and connects the most important training metrics so you can gain a deeper understanding of what’s happening internally at specific intensities. Armed with this knowledge, you can target your training more effectively and be smarter when you are competing.

One of the most unique measurements gathered with INSCYD testing is the VLamax. VLamax is the maximum production of lactic acid in your blood and gives you a complete understanding of your anaerobic metabolism (which turns out to be critical for endurance events as well as shorter events).

With INSCYD you you can remove the guess work when it comes to your nutrition requirements. INSCYD helps you narrow down exactly how much you should be consuming at varying intensities. By understanding the interactions between your aerobic system and fuelling needs you will be able to customize your approach to nutrition. With INSCYD you will know how much you need to consume every hour at any given intensity.

INSCYD Used By The Pros

The INSCYD testing protocol is being used by the top professionals in both triathlon and cycling. INSCYD gives them a clear picture of what’s happening inside their bodies at specific intensities and has become an essential part of tailoring their training.
